Iranian national Hamid Nouri was arrested at Stockholm Airport in 2019.

The family of an Iranian citizen on trial in Sweden has released shocking allegations of mistreatment as they continue to fight a lengthy legal battle for his release.

 

Hamid Nouri was arrested at Stockholm Airport in 2019. Charges brought against him include human rights abuses against prisoners dating back to 1988.

After his arrest, Nouri's wife told Press TV that he had been held in solidarity confinement, physically assaulted by prison staff and subjected to mental torture. Nouri and his family deny all allegations and his detention has been branded illegal by Tehran.

Not only has the trial itself been condemned by Iranian authorities as "unlawful" but also the treatment of the family of the accused.

Shocking footage of Nouri's family being harassed by anti-Iran dissidents has deepened Iranian outrage at the Swedish authorities handling of the case.

Nouri's family have been in and out of court all week. Every time they arrive, supporters of a notorious anti-Iranian terror group, known as Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MKO), harass and threaten them.

The Swedish authorities are slow to respond.

The accusations against Nouri are mostly leveled by the members of the same group.

The MKO has conducted numerous assassinations and bombings against Iranian statesmen and civilians since the 1979 victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Its members fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq, where they enjoyed backing from former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist assaults since the Islamic Revolution, about 12,000 have fallen victim to the MKO’s acts of terror.

The anti-Iran cult was on the U.S. government’s list of terrorist organizations until 2012. Major European countries, including France, have also removed it from their blacklists.
