Imprisoned Lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh is under severe physical and psychological torture by her interrogators.
According to Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran, interrogators in prison are torturing jailed lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh who is on her 20th day of hunger strike.
News from Evin prison’s ward 209 is that even though Nasrin Sotoudeh is on hunger strike, the interrogators keep torturing her. The ward hears her agonizing cries in the middle of the night caused from pain and torment.
Her haunting cries have been extremely distressing for the other political prisoners. According to this report Nasrin Sotoudeh’s screams can be heard almost every night throughout the ward.
Nasrin Sotoudeh is a passionate defender of human rights and she routinely questioned the legitimacy of the current laws in Iran. She protested the illegal conduct against her clients that occurred with the knowledge of the judges, Intelligence agents, and interrogators.
On September 4, 2010, she was arrested at her home by Intelligence agents and taken to ward 209 of Evin prison. Nasrin Sotoudeh has been on hunger strike since September 25th to protest against her illegal arrest and unbearable suffering.
Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran asks the UN High Commissioner along with all internal and international agencies to demand the immediate and unconditional release of this noble and honorable lawyer who is devoted to humanity.
