Evin training centre transformed into a detention centre
Evin training centre has been transformed by the regime’s intelligence service into a detention centre.
HRNA: Following the massive arrests on Ashoura and the past two days in Tehran, Evin prison has been transformed into a temporary detention centre. According to reports from a human rights group in Iran, the massive number of arrests in the past three days forced Evin prison authorities to build a temporary detention centre inside the prison. According to eye witnesses and other prisoners, section 8 of the prison has been sectioned off by walls and is under full control of the regime’s intelligence service.
Two floors of the training centre building is also in full control of the intelligence service ( section 209). The prisoners estimated the number of detainees are more than 1500 and some of these detainees in the past days have been transferred to somewhere outside the prison.
