Imprisoned Iranian rapper Saman Seidi (Yasin)

Jailed Iranian Rapper Alleges Drug Injection In Psychiatric Center

Saturday, 07/29/2023

In a distressing turn of events, renowned Iranian rapper, Saman Seidi (Yasin), has claimed that the regime injected him with an unknown drug in a psychiatric center.

Yasin revealed an ordeal of "unknown drug" injection at Aminabad Psychiatric Center, leading to instability in his mental and physical well-being.

Prison authorities transferred him to the center a week ago, following his arrest during last year's nationwide protests.

Sending a message to Hengaw Human Rights Organization, a Kurdish rights group, from within Rajaeeshahr prison in Karaj, the artist expressed grave concern about his deteriorating condition.

He revealed that on July 22, he was forcibly taken to the psychiatric center, where he was administered the unknown substance with considerable violence and physical assault.

As a result of the injection, Saman Yasin was unconscious for 24 hours, and upon regaining consciousness, found himself restrained to a hospital bed with impaired vision persisting for two days.

"They should take me to the forensic doctor, to see what they did to me," Yasin urged in his statement to Hengaw.

Yasin asserted that he was in "perfect health" prior to his arrest. Holding those responsible for his predicament, he pointedly mentioned notorious Judge Abodlghasem Salavati and other officials.

In a compelling audio message from prison on July 21, Yasin had passionately maintained his innocence, vehemently asserting that he had not committed any crime.

The artist's initial death sentence by the Tehran Revolutionary Court was later challenged, leading to a retrial that the Supreme Court granted. However, the ordeal has persisted, with his fate remaining uncertain.
