Iranian diplomat Jalal Sharafi who was released last week after he had been kidnapped in front of Iran’s embassy in Baghdad two months ago said that he had undergone the most horrible tortures in the first 15 days of his detention by the CIA agents.

“In the first 15 days of my arrest, I underwent terrifying tortures, specially the piercing of my feet by CIA agents,” Sharafi told representatives of the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) at a hospital here in Tehran on Tuesday, a statement released by the Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Bureau reported. (emphasis added)

According to the statement, Sharafi was hospitalized to receive the needed medication and be checked by his physician, where the head of ICRC representative office in Tehran Peter J. Shtoker and Iraq’s ambassador to Tehran Sheikh Mohammad Majeed were also present to witness Sharafi’s deep scars and tortured body organs.

A report released by Sharafi’s physician said, “Parts of Sharafi’s feet were pierced by drill as well as the fractures in his nose and neck, deep wounds on his back, bleeding of his digestion organs and his damaged and torn ears are easily observed and they have also been checked by the representative of the Red Cross.” (emphasis added)

Ever since his arrival, Sharafi has been hospitalized at a Tehran hospital to receive constant medical care.
