According to mowjcamp, about 20 post-election detainees, mostly the youth, were released on Wednesday. Close sources to the mowjcamp also said that half of the released detainees were women.
The only name that is confirmed by this time is Hamid Chubineh, former member of Islamic Association of Students of Tehran University of Medical Science. Chubineh’s lawyer told ISNA on Wednesday evening that after posting bail to the prosecutor, he was released from Evin. Yet, he emphasized that Chubineh’s case is still under investigation by the judiciary.
Meanwhile, semi-official Fars News Agency reported on Thursday morning that the members of the Majlis (Parliament) special committee held talks with the detainees on Wednesday as part of their probe into allegations of prisoner abuse. The lawmakers said that the detainees’ complaints were mainly related to a temporary detention center named Kahrizak, where they were kept before being sent to the Evin prison, press TV reported.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Head of Iran’s Parliamentary Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, who is also a member of the fact-finding committee, declared that all the detainees “are satisfied with their situation in the Evin prison.” Boroujerdi noted that the detainees’ situation in the temporary detention centers should be investigated.
