Iranian Journalist abused in Prison

According to sources from Tehran's notorious Evin Prison, detained journalist and renowned member of Iran's Center of Human Rights Defenders, Abdolreza Tajik, was forcibly stripped naked and "dishonored" while being interrogated in the presence of Tehran's deputy prosecutor. Details of the alleged offense have not been mentioned by the sources or family members, but the term "dishonored" is often used in Persian culture to describe sexual assault or abuse, including in legal context.

Parvin Tajik, Abdolreza's sister after their first and only visit after one month of imprisoning him said, "He was very nervous and depressed and wanted to discuss the case with his attorney and Tehran's prosecutor." Tajik's attorney has not been permitted to visit him so far.
