Early September, in a detailed report, Amnesty International revealed that the peaceful protesters – who have been arrested during the nationwide 2019 Iran Protests – were savagely flogged, sexually abused, and given electric shocks by the Islamic security agents in a horrific post-protest crackdown.
“In the days following the widespread protests, videos showing the Islamic Republic of Iran’s security forces deliberately killing and injuring unarmed protesters and bystanders sent shockwaves worldwide. Much less visible has been the catalog of cruelty meted out to detainees and their relatives by IRI officials away from the public eye,” according to Amnesty International Diana Eltahawy in a condemning report published on September 2, 2020.
