Zanyar Moradi and Loghman Moradi (no relation) were sentenced to death in 2009 for “involvement in the murder of the Marivan Friday imam’s (prayer leader’s) son” and “moharebeh (enmity with God).” The men denied the charges in court and said they only confessed to the murder because agents of the Intelligence Ministry had tortured them. They were held in 2009 for nine months in the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center in Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan Province, and six months in Sanandaj Central Prison before being transferred to Ward 209 in Evin Prison in Tehran. On December 22, 2010 they were sentenced to death by Judge Abolqassem Salavati of Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court and transferred to Rajaee Shahr Prison. , Zanyar Moradi said: “We were tortured a lot. I still have the marks on my body. I was even operated on in 2012 and 2013 for my injuries. I have slipped discs. I was only 19. I didn’t know anything about national security and I certainly didn’t have the tolerance for torture. If they had told me to take responsibility for every assassination in Iran since 1970, I would have. I just wanted that terrible torture to end. They had my home address and threatened my mother and little sister. We had no choice. We said we’d accept everything they wanted. They wrote the scenario they were looking for and we signed it.”
