IP- 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.

Iran PressEurope: Hamid Nouri, an Iranian citizen, was arrested by the security forces on November 9, 2019 at Stockholm Airport, upon his arrival in Sweden, and he has been in prison for nearly 30 months.

Charges brought against Hamid Nouri include human rights abuses against prisoners dating back to 1988.

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

Iranian authorities have condemned the trial itself as "unlawful" and the treatment of the accused family.

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 has been in and out of court all week. Every time they arrive, supporters of a notorious anti-Iranian terror group, the Peoples Mujahideen of Iran, or MKO, harass and threaten them. The Swedish authorities are slow to respond.

The accusation again Nouri are mostly taken from members of this same group. The MKO has been accused of fabricating atrocities multiple times. Again raises questions about the prosecution's credibility and who wishes to see Nouri sentenced to life. 

The MKO has a dark history of assassinations and bombings against the Iranian government and nation. It notoriously sided with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the eight-year war.

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