The very vicious and barbaric methods resorted to by Iranian intelligence agents forcing Mr. Malaki and those accompanying him into the vehicle ended in Dr. Malaki’s head being broken as he was battered to the vehicle. The state security-intelligence agents took them towards Tehran’s renowned Behesht-e Zahra cemetery and left them in the middle of nowhere, forcing them to return home on foot. To this very moment Dr. Malaki is in stable conditions yet he is still suffering from headaches and bruises across his body.
It is worth noting that Dr. Mohammad Malaki spent years in various jails in Iran under torture and harassment. He is a staunch opponent of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran and has made public speeches against the regime.
