Iranlaborreport – Human Rights and Democracy Advocates in Iran report on transfer of the Mansour Osanloo, the leader of the Tehran and Municipality Vahed Bus Workers Syndicate, to solitary confinement in Karaj Gohardasht prison. Osaloo has been going under heavy interrogation in the prison for the past three days by the intelligence ministry operatives.
Osanloo has been taken to the solitary confinement since 10:30 a.m. on May 29 from the ward number 5, the special ward for those prisoners being treated with Methadone or inflicted with Hepatitis, and AIDS in Gohardasht. The transfer is said to be related to a new case against him alleging making contacts with the members of the opposition in the prison. The case was opened last March.
Osanloo in a visit with five doctors at the forensic commission in the city of Karaj in April was found to be in need of proper treatments outside the prison compounds. The care he has been denied.
