      (Anjomane Defa az Hoghooghe Zendanian) declared today that her visit
      to her husband in Evin prison was prevented. The security guards of

      Emaddedin Baghi is imprisoned in solitary confinement and is
      undergoing interrogation. Mrs. Kamali said that her husband is
      enduring white torture in the 209 lockup. White torture a.k.a. soft
      torture is utilized for putting pressure on the political prisoners

      anti-governmental propaganda and disclosing classified governmental
      documents in order to gain information from the detainees in the
      security lockups around the country.

      As well as spreading these information's during meetings, gatherings
      and having published these materials through the "Defense of the
      prisoners rights" association.

      According to the defense lawyer of Mr. Baghi, none of the prisoners
      boast any undisclosed governmental information.

      Mr. Baghi has been a defender of the right to life and has been
      seeking an end to the death penalty. In the year 2005 he had received
      the Human right prize of the French national commission on Human
      rights. He had previous to that spent 2 years in prison from 2000 to
      2002, after which he supported freedom of speech by writing numerous
      articles. He then founded the Association in support of Iranian
      prisoners and continued his activities in support of Human rights
      beneath extensive suppression.
