A witness to the sustained torture of the champion Iranian wrestler Navid Afakri died under mysterious circumstances in solitary confinement on Tuesday in Greater Tehran prison, according to his family. The US government media outlet Radio Farda reported on the death of Shahin Naseri and said it obtained his latest audio message from inside the Tehran prison. Naseri said he was an “eyewitness to medieval torture” of Navid Afkari. He announced his "solidarity" with Navid’s brothers, Vahid and Habib, who are incarcerated, "because of the baseless hatred and baseless accusations against the citizens of Iran and the violation of the most basic citizenship rights" by the Islamic Republic. Naseri said he was “disgusted” and "demands the revocation of his citizenship of this regime."
