Pezhman Zafarmand’s father, Hassan Zafarmand, said that he was able to visit his son for short while in the presence of security guards. “He was in a very bad shape, looked very pale, and hardly had the strength to talk. He said he had been on hunger strike for 45 days. He looked in a terrible shape. He said his hands were numb, and he could barely move them. He said he has been under pressure to give a televised confession.
