Tortured student activist taken to court

Majid Tavakoli was taken to the Revolutionary Court on Sunday with torture signs clearly evident above his right eyebrow. He did not know why he was taken to court. Tavakoli, who was wearing prison clothes from the security section 209 in Evin Prison, said he has been kept in solitary in section 240 of this prison for the past 3 weeks. This is while this student activist was kept in a solitary cell in section 209, three weeks before that.
This Amir Kabir University student was summoned to court again even as he was previously sentenced to 8 years and six months of prison, a 5 year ban on political activities and a 5 year ban from leaving the country in a trial behind closed doors. (Bamdad Khabar – Feb. 22, 2010)
