According to the Iranian Human Rights Society’s report, Mojahed Kurkure kept in solitary confinement in Shiban Ahvaz prison for more than a year
According to the Iranian Human Rights Society’s report, nearly a year has passed since the arrest of political prisoner Mujahid Kurkure, he is still in solitary confinement. Mujahid Kurkure injured and arrested on December 20, 2022, during a military attack by security agents on his personal house in Persila Izeh village. On December 20, armed agents attacked his house with semi-heavy military equipment and a large-scale campaign, and by shelling and blowing up the house, killed Hossein Saeedi and Mahmoud Ahmadi, and injured and arrested 2 others, including Mujahid Kurkure.
Government authorities, through scenario-building, have attempted to pin the massacre of people by the security forces in Izeh, including the killing of Kian Pirflak, on Mujahid Kurkure and other young people in this city. This attempt is to deflect blame from the officials involved in this crime.
Kian Pirflak’s father announced earlier this year in a video:
“I have not filed any complaint against Mujahid Kurkure and the people of Izeh, and I will not, because my wife and I saw with our own eyes that the security forces, under the command of Eidi Ali-pour, tied up our car, injured me, and killed my son.”
“One year in solitary confinement”
This report mentionns Mujahed Kurkure kept in solitary confinement in Shiban Prison in Ahvaz for over a year. Prison authorities have stated that due to his family’s disclosure of his case, they will not transfer him from solitary confinement to the general ward. Due to the poor food situation in Shiban Prison, he has been having problems for a long time. Some inmates used to provide him with food in the past months, but with the revelation of this matter, this possibility has also been lost. He had requested warm clothes as the weather got colder, but prison officials refrained from providing these necessities to him in order to exert more pressure.
The unresponsiveness of the judicial authorities and the lawyer in the case of Mujahid Korkor
The judicial authorities and the lawyer of Mojahed Kurkure are currently not providing any specific response regarding his situation to his family. This also applies to his lawyer, Davoud Shahvali. He has not responded to the family’s calls for over a year, causing increased concerns about his situation. According to Kurkure ‘s family, they were only able to meet this lawyer once accidentally for a short period of time. It is possible that the reason for the lawyer’s lack of response is to prevent the disclosure of case information and to prove Kurkure’s innocence. Mojahed Korkore, being in solitary confinement, is unable to change his lawyer. For unspecified reasons, this lawyer also refuses to provide case-related information to his family.
Physical and psychological torture for the purpose of obtaining forced confessions
Mujahed Kurkure has been deprived of the right to make phone calls to his family and lawyer in the past year. During a meeting with his family, he revealed that he had been subjected to physical and psychological torture in order to obtain forced confessions and acceptance of the charges by security forces. According to him, the authorities have artificially simulated his execution multiple times. They have also forced him to take pills that have caused long-term disorientation and impaired his ability to speak coherently.
