Sudden Transfer of Habibollah Lotfi to the Solitary Cells in the Detention Centre of Ministry of Intelligencepublished on Monday, January 12, 2009
Student Council of Defense of Human Rights in Kurdistan: Although Mr. Habibollah Lotfi’s death sentence has been appealed, Mr. Lotfi was suddenly taken to the solitary cells in the detention centre of the Ministry of Intelligence, without any reason or explanation.
Mr. Lotfi who is in very poor health due to brutal torture he was subjected to during interrogation was transferred from the Central Sanandaj Prison to the detention centre for the Ministry of Intelligence. It is not clear why he was transferred and how long he will be imprisoned at that location.
Mr. Lotfi has suffered from numerous illnesses as a result of torture, including infection of his intestines.
Mr. Lotfi’s family is extremely concerned about this sudden transfer and has requested an immediate clarification behind the reason of his transfer.
