Anvar Khezri, a Kurdish Sunni prisoner, was summoned by a phone call to the Public Prosecutor’s Office in Mahabad, in Iran’s northwestern province of West Azerbaijan, on 21 January 2010. He was then detained and taken to the detention centre of the Ministry of Intelligence in Orumiyeh, West Azerbaijan province.
In February 2019, he wrote a letter saying that he had attempted to commit suicide in objection to the physical and mental torture he was subjected to in the period he was interrogated in the detention centre of the Ministry of Intelligence in Orumiyeh.
The letter also pointed out the obstruction of justice by various judicial institutions about him and his co-defendants.
