At Zahedan Prison, in Sistan and Baluchestan Province, Iran, Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports that political prisoners continue to endure mistreatment by the personnel, malnutrition, medical negligence, and the temperature extremes of an overcrowded prison without climate control. As well, their families are being harassed by the authorities.
Overpopulation is another concern at the prison, where construction and repairs on two wards has dragged on since last year. Many inmates spend their nights on the floor.
