Behrouz Javid Tehrani, is a veteran student in the July 1999 Student uprisings trying to fight for civil rand human rights with his classmates in Iran. While some were beaten, tortured, killed, executed, Mr. Tehrani is the only surviving student from the uprising who is still in prison. He has been imprisoned for total of 10 years and counting! He was recently moved to solitary confinement and in solitary he is subjected to much torture and could result in his death.
The tortures Behrooz Javid Tehrani endures is handed down by the head interrogator from the Ministry of Intelligence Saeed Sheikhan. Other officers involved in Behrooz’s torture include: Ali Haj Kazemi, Ali Mohammadi, Kermani, Faraji, and Hassan Akharian. Behrooz Javid Tehrani has received constant death threats in the presence of other prisoners by the names mentioned above. The inhuman treatment by prison officials has already led to the murders of two political prisoners Akbar Mohammadi andVali-allah Feiz Mahdavi.
Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran (HRDAI) warns against the life threatening dangers Behrooz Javid Tehrani is forced to endure. HRDAI seeks help from all people who care about humanity to save Behrooz’s life. We also request immediate action from The [UN] High Commissioner for Human Rights, reporters on torture, and other human rights organizations to save this political prisoner’s life.
Just last year, in 2009, Sarah Leah Whitson, the Middle East director for Human Rights Watch, wrote: "Behrooz Javid-Tehrani, who is critically ill, is in prison for his peaceful political dissent and his human rights advocacy. He should never have been imprisoned in the first place and he should be released at once or he will likely die in prison."
