Committee of Human Rights Reporters

Hadi Aravand, a death row prisoner in Sari Prison was killed under torture.
The head of this prison has claimed that he committed suicide with a sheet but the forensics doctor said he died after being choked.
The signs and bruises from torture were clearly evident all over his body to the extent that one of his hands was broken and his back was injured. There was also a 1 cm cut around his neck which cancels the probability of suicide. A person close to him has announced that the cuts around his wrists show how much pressure he was under while dying.
“Hadi was transferred from his cell on April 30 at about 5 pm and a few hours later, his injured and wounded body was at the Sari Hospital”, this person added.
According to the forensics doctor, his feet were crossed and shackled while his hands were tied from behind while he was killed and he did not have any opportunity to commit suicide. In this position, he was choked with a plastic strap which was placed around his neck.
According to other prisoners, since the arrival of a new warden named Abedi, there were four instances of suspicious deaths in this prison in the past 7 months which shows the bad conditions under which prisoners are kept in Sari Prison.
Hadi Aravandi, 23, was sentenced to death and would have been executed three months from now. He committed murder in a street fight on March 19, 2008 and was buried last Sunday in the cemetery in Surak which is a few kilometers from Sari

قتل يک زنداني توسط ماموران زندان ساري
هادي اراوند، متهم محکوم به اعدام در زندان ساري هفته گذشته زير شکنجه ماموران زندان به قتل رسيد.
رييس زندان مدعي خودکشي وي با ملحفه است، اما پزشکي قانوني خفگي را علت مرگ مي‌داند.
آثار و کبودي شکنجه در همه قسمت‌هاي بدن هادي اراوند ديده مي‌شد؛ به طوري‌که يکي از دست‌ها شکسته بود و پشتش هم زخمي بود. دور گردن هم به عمق يک سانتيمتر بريده بود؛ که امکان خودکشي را از بين مي‌برد. يکي از آشنايان وي با اعلام اين مطالب به خبرنگار رهانا اضافه مي‌کند که البته بريدگي مچ دست و پا بيانگر اين است که چقدر در حال مرگ به وي فشار وارد شده است.
وي در ادامه گفت: هادي روز جمعه ۱۰ ارديبهشت، حول و حوش ساعت ۵ از بندش به بيرون منتقل شد و ساعتي بعد جسد مجروح و زخمي‌اش در بيمارستان امام ساري بود.
طبق تائيد پزشکي قانوني در هنگام مرگ پاها به صورت ضربدري و دست ها ازپشت بسته بودند و امکان هيچ گونه خودکشي وجود نداشت و در اين حالت بست پلاستيکي را به گردنش انداختند و آن را کشيدند که باعث خفگي و در نهايت مرگ اين زنداني شده است.
بنا به گفته زنداني‌ها از زمان ورود رئيس جديد زندان «عابدي» در ۷ ماه گذشته زندان ساري شاهد ۴ مورد مرگ مشکوک بوده است که نشان دهنده‌ي وضعيت بد زندان ساري است
هادي اراوند، ۲۳ ساله، از زنداني‌هاي محکوم به اعدام بوده است که سه ماه به اجراي حکم‌اش باقي مانده بود. وي در ۲۹ اسفند ۸۶ در نزاع خياباني مرتکب قتل شده بود و روز يکشنبه هفته قبل در آرامگاه شهر سورک در چند کيلومتري ساري به خاک سپرده شد. (رهانا – 21/2/89)
