Pressure on Mohammad Davari for Confessions Continues Despite Hunger Strikes

Mohammed Davari served as opposition candidate Mehdi Karroubi’s Chief of Staff as well as Editor-in-Chief of Saham News. The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran reports that, "...Davari is still being subjected to mistreatment, and physical and psychological abuse with the aim of extracting fake confessions from him" about "…claims and evidence produced by Mehdi Karroubi regarding systematic torture and instances of rape of men and women in prisons and detention centers where protesters were taken.

"Mohammad Davari is a member of The Iranian TeachersAssociation. He was arrested on 8 September 2009 after security forces stormed Mehdi Karroubi’s personal offices as well as Etemad-e Melli Party’s headquarters."

Hadi Ghaemi, Executive Director of International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, addressed pro-democracy and pro-human rights activists near the UN last Monday--the day that Ahmadinejad gave a speech regarding the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
