According to Naghi Mahmoodi, the attorney of Yunes Zamani, a student activist, he has been tortured by his investigators in Tabriz intelligence house of detention. The former chief of student magazine named “Iledrium” form Hamadan University of Bo Ali Sina, has been nabbed in 17th June by the province intelligence office in Ardabil. He was also secretary of the literary part of “Bayan” media who had been nabbed several times before in Hamadan and Ardabil. According to his family he had been threaten by intelligence offices before. After having a meeting in Wednesday, his family declares that the effects of torture were obvious on him. The student activist also declared that he had been tortured by electrical shock. They also said that he had been syringed with drags. “He has been affected by heart strike and had been in hospital for 3 days in that period” his brother, Yusuf Soleymani mentioned.

He was a senior student in Bo Ali Sina University of Hamadan who could not finish his study because of being detained So he has also got such problems too

On the other hand, other activist report that Ayat Mehr Ali Beglo, another Azeri social activist, who had been nabbed in 10th of May in Sofiyan city, was tortured in intelligence office also. Still his attorney, Abbas Jamali, could not reach his file and he is in the detention and the inspector of the case, Judge Hashemzadeh, is not revealing his charges according to the kind of the case which is related to national security.

Naghi Mahmoodi, the lawyer of Yunes Zamani, declares about his constituent’s case status that he was charged for disruption of national security and acting toward extermination of regime, despite that he had been just a cultural and student activist.

“Several times of heart strike as shocking with Electricity made my constituent to be in hospital and also I told the judge that he had been got B and C hepatitis and needs special medical care but there was no related response from the officials”, he added pointing to his constituent’s physical mood.

This lawyer believes that many of cultural activities supposed to be violating national security. Here is an interview with Naghi Mahmoodi, the attorney of the nabbed university student about his condition;

The family of Yunes Soleymani, the former chief of “Iledrium” student’s magazine, stated that as they visited him in Wednesday 25th August in Tabriz, they become aware of torture effects on his body and also said that he had been syringed. Tell us what exactly had happened on Yunes Zamani.

I also heard this from his family and I talked to him after I returned there. He confirmed had been under psychic and physical torture and been electrically shocked several times which made him got heart strike and be fainted to death. He had been taken to hospital one time after that. Moreover; he got B and C hepatitis and problems with cardiovascular, breathing, digestion and hepatic diseases. At the time I lodged the mandate to the trial branch, I mentioned his problems with related medical documents and explained about his mood and needs of special medical care and must use his drugs on time. I also mentioned the possibility of his diseases infection to others. Unfortunately still it is not likely to be observed like that

What is the charge of Yunes Zamani, your constituent that has to be tortured like this for confessing in investigations?

He has been charged for propagating against the Islamic Republic regime and being a member of groups wanting to exterminate national security.

Legally is this a case of representing conflict with regime? You are talking about just a chief of a student magazine who his activities are related to cultural matters. Are these kinds of activities can be implicated exterminating activities or violating national securities?

Any activities of national or cultural activists in Azerbaijan were peaceful and social-related. None of them were offensive, terroristic or heist to be deserved such harsh responses toward social activists of Azerbaijan. So the treatment which was done against a head of a student magazine that his activities represent the national needs of Azeri people was not fair.

He was a senior student in Bo Ali Sina University of Hamadan who could not finish his study because of being detained. So he has also got such problems too.

As stated before Yunes Soleymani had been tortured as he had been held. This statement is also proved by his family and you as his lawyer. Is there any justice to pursue these kinds of illegal activities? Is there any record for such complains gotten fine results?

Yes there is a possibility to complain for who had been tortured. Unfortunately; the officials working for intelligence organizations are not well-known. So his complain would not end in a good result because he has to complain about a specific person. Something same happened for “Hamid Valaei” who also was tortured as he had been imprisoned and the judge asked for a specific name. We responded that we do not know anything about the officer because he had been blindfolded and that person did not reviled his name and also the name was not on his clothes either. That’s why complaining is wasteful and the actual identity is always asked in courts.

In my opinion you’d better change your Radio’s name as it is a “Persian” Radio. Because Iran is a multiracial country and it is not fair to say the Radio is limited to just Persian speakers.

I really appreciate for this advice. I hope my every compatriots in any race from Kurdistan, Baluchistan, Azerbaijan, and north of Khorasan know that because the radio broadcasts in Persian language is titled as Persian Radio, otherwise it belongs to my every compatriots and everyone needed to have a Radio talking about democracy and their rights.
