Breaking news from the Majles Reformist news site, Parleman News (h/t New York Times):

One of the members of the Special Committee on Reviewing the Conditions of Post-Election Prisoners has admitted that, “Sexual molestation using batons and glass bottles against some of the  post-election prisoners has become widespread.”
“Unfortunately, some of the post-election prisoners have suffered by the usage of glass bottles and batons and these incidents have become common for the Special Committee.
“Though we do not have reliable information or documentation from the agents of this molestation, it does not really make difference at the heart of the matter.”

As Mehdi Karroubi and his political associates leak more details about prison abuse, corroboration by Majles representatives will make it very difficult for the government to control the people’s reaction.
