A Twitter user Talkoholic,

has announced her confessions to the Iranian state media and posted them on YouTube. You can see them here:

This “common revolutionary greenie girl”

as she likes to be known as tells us that she was inspired to make the confession after reading Iran_Translator‘s Green Brief #46.

She hates it when some people try to control other people’s minds and recommends this book chapter by Dr. Robert J. Lifton to everyone.

Update: This video has also been posted on Iranian.com

 and has received some comments there too.

(Radio Farda, 25.06.2020)

Using the Twitter handle “Talkoholic” I wanted to raise awareness to this cruel form of human rights violation. Now I see good news, progress. There is more awareness than before.

But the practice of using forced confessions to convict innocent people in Iran didn’t stop.

See this for example, this happened recently-

forced confession 

View Post

is a confession obtained from a suspect or a prisoner by means of torture (including enhanced interrogation techniques) or other forms of duress.

Depending on the level of coercion used, a forced confession is not valid in revealing the truth. The individuals being interrogated may agree to the story presented to them or even make up falsehoods themselves in order to satisfy the interrogator and discontinue their suffering
