Naeimeh Doostdar - Evin, The Notorious Prison
17 March 2016 by Editor

Iran's Evin Prison is one of the world's most brutal and infamous jails. It is noted for its political prisoners wing, where prisoners have been held both before and after the 1979 Iranian Revolution. But because detainees are usually blindfolded when taken there, little is known about the prison. Iranian journalist Naeimeh Doostdar was detained in Evin Prison in 2011 for seeking employment at Radio Farda. In this video, she talks about her ordeal.
