Kurdish prisoner Anvar Hossein Panahi returned to public prison after enduring 10 days in solitary confinement at the Ministry of Intelligence detention center.

CHRR – After spending 10 days in solitary confinement, Anvar Panahi has been transferred back to Ward 2 of Sanandaj prison.

According to news shared by his family Anvar Panahi was put under extreme mental duress and physical torture by interrogators in attempts to extract a false televised confession.

The Revolutionary Court first sentenced Anvar Hossein Panahi, Kurdish social and political activist, to death. After tireless efforts and protests on the part of human rights activists, his death sentence was later commuted to life in prison.

Hossein Panahi’s family members have shared that officials of the Ministry of Intelligence told them in their view the death sentence should have been upheld and Panahi should have remained on death row.
