Former political prisoner, Hossein Farsi

My name is Hossein Farsi. I was a political prisoner from 1981 to 1993. I was held in Evin, Ghezelhesar, and Gohardasht prisons.

I was arrested on charges of supporting the Mojahedin-e-Khalq, MEK, and conducting political activities with respect to the MEK.

In 1988, when the massacre happened, I was in Gohardasht Prison and spent four days in and around the “Death Committee” and the “Death Corridor”.

In order to make clear how this massacre happened and that it didn’t just take place overnight, please allow me to go back, so I can give a more detailed account.
