Sepideh Gulian says that the so-called “cultural” wing of Evin prison has been turned into a center for interrogation and torture

In a letter she wrote from Evin prison, a prominent female activist in Iran described the “brutal” treatment of prisoners there, and how confessions are extracted from them.

Activist Sepideh Qolian wrote her letter from her prison in Tehran, where she has been held since 2018 after being convicted of her work “against national security” and sentenced to five years in prison for supporting a strike and labor protests.
