Three Sunni Prisoners Taken to Solitary Confinement in Preparation for Executions

On the one-year anniversary of the group execution of 25 Sunni prisoners in Rajai Shahr Prison, three Sunni prisoners in the same prison were transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their executions. 

Iran Human Rights (AUG 3 2017): On the morning of Wednesday August 2, three prisoners in Karaj's Rajai Shahr Prison were reportedly transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their executions.

The transfers occurred on the same day as the one year anniversary of the group execution of 25 Sunni prisoners in Rajai Shahr Prison.
