That night he stood and commanded. He shouted that why did you telephoned BBC radio? What did you say to BBC? Tell, what did you say to UN officials in Baghdad? He was concerned about me, disclosing my situation and years of solitary prison in media and international institutions. He ordered, Hassan Mohassel and Nader Rafi’ee Nejad rushed and slapped me in the face, and their military, hard boots patted my legs and…
I was transferred to the solitary prison in August 1992, since I set forth political strategic questions and after I insisted on my opinions in discussions with Masoud Rajavi.

Yes. Ibrahim Zakeri was not a “liberation fighter”, but a “guard of dictatorship”.
We pray for the savior of those Iranians based in Iraq
