이란, 학대 영상 유출 후 에빈 교도관 수사

이란 검찰은 지난주 테헤란의 에빈 교도소에서 수감자들에 대한 광범위한 학대를 보여주는 영상이 유출된 후 6명의 경비원에 대한 형사 사건을 개시했다..

The judiciary said “some” prison guards were in detention after a three-day investigation into mistreatment and grim conditions at Evin. Zabihollah Khodaeian, a judiciary spokesperson, said authorities had also summoned two guards and punished others. He did not elaborate on the penalties or identifying the suspects.

Last week the Associated Press published parts of the videos and a report about the abuse at the facility in northern Tehran, long known for holding political prisoners and those with ties to the west whom Iran uses as bargaining chips in international negotiations. An online account purportedly belonging to a self-described hacker group shared footage of an incident and parts of other surveillance video it had seized.

“The scenes shown in the published films were against the law and it is not justifiable under any circumstances,” said Khodaeian, noting that the leaked clips had been selected and edited from different scenes over the course of years.

In one part of the footage, a man smashes a bathroom mirror to try to cut open his arm. Prisoners and even guards beat each other in scenes captured by surveillance cameras. Inmates are seen sleeping in single rooms with bunk beds stacked three high against the walls, wrapping themselves in blankets to stay warm.

Iran’s judiciary ordered an investigation last week after the head of the prison system acknowledged the videos were real. He expressed contrition and said he took responsibility for the “unacceptable behaviours”.
