Human Rights Activists in Iran
Yesterday afternoon, May 5, 2009, Ayatollah Boroujerdi was beaten and reviled in the special section of the Yazd central prison.
The prison authorities have expressed that the reason of using these harshness and humiliations is massive disseminations of his recent messages specially the issuance of a statement about presidential elections.
This dissident clergy has asked for paving a way for an open referendum with the presence of international observers in Iran, during his recent messages, letters and declarations.
It's necessary to say that there is no exact information about the fate of this opinion prisoner because he has been deprived of phone conversation by the prosecutor of the special court for clergy and also today when his family referred to the mentioned prison in order to visit him they weren’t permitted.
