Iran Political Prisoner Moved to Solitary for Peaceful Anti-Regime Protest
The Iranian regime moved a political prisoner to solitary confinement for chanting anti-government slogans last week.
On Monday, February 11, as Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Revolution, Mehdi Farahi Shandiz, a teacher, started to chant about the torture and executions carried out by the mullahs since they stole power.
Following that, Farahi Shandiz, 57, was moved from hall 6 to solitary confinement in hall 14 in Karaj Central Prison.
Farahi Shandiz, a labor activist and private high school tutor, is serving nine years in prison for three separate charges of “insulting the supreme leader”; six years are for charges brought against him since he has been in prison.
