The report also expressed concern about the physical condition of political prisoners, including Mohammad Nourizadeh and Narges Mohammadi, and stressed that their lives are in serious danger.
This report refers to the statement of the head of the Iranian judiciary that the protests are not tolerated. The Iranian regime has now intensified its attacks, harassment and detention of its opponents.
