In the name of God
Dear colleagues, dear friends and family, you are asking about my husband, Mr. Seyed Hashem Khastar, through the phone and virtual space. He is a representative of Iran’s freedom-loving teachers who, at the age of 70, has been in prison for four years without a day off. He has only met twice in person in Vakil Abad prison, I inform you:
On December 28, we learned that he and Dr. Kamal Jafari beaten and insulted by two murderers. These two murderers, who transferred from another ward to ward 1/6, are introduced as lawyers andsecurity officer.
I went to the prison and the Revolutionary Court many times to follow up on the truth of the issue. Finally, Mr. Tabatabai, the judge overseeing the prison, said: “Your wife’s case is under the direct supervision of the prosecutor.” I went to the prosecutor, and they said they will investigate. I went the next day, and they said Mr. Khastar is healthy and has no problems and is not in solitary cell. He is only forbidden to meet and call for 15 days.

In addition, Mr. Prosecutor had ordered to remove those three murderers from section 1/6. According to the prosecutor, my husband should have call on January 1st, but unfortunately he didn’t call, I followed up again and they said that his phone ban has extended.
I went to the prison, and they said that the phone ban extended by Mr. Prosecutor. They said that if it has extended, we cannot do anything. Now I am worried that it is true that his arms and legs broken after massacre.
