Iranian media reported reports of unrest in several prisons and a mass flight from a facility in the west of the country, despite the temporary release of about 100,000 prisoners to reduce prison overcrowding.

"As you can see in Iran and some other countries, we see riots, frightened prisoners, worried because of the great loss of contact with family members and so on. So there are issues," said Robert Colville, a spokesman for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in an online press conference in Geneva. Too many related to this. "

It is noteworthy that the Iranian authorities released 83 thousand temporary prisoners from among more than 280 thousand prisoners across Iran due to the outbreak of the epidemic, but they excluded thousands of detainees and political prisoners, especially in Ahvaz prisons, despite appeals by the United Nations and international organizations.
