After Iran’s Islamic Revolution secretive courts were set up to try suspected ideological opponents of the regime, with no jury, no defense lawyers and often no evidence beyond a confession extracted from the defendant by means of torture. Those who survived them still bear the psychological scars today. In this new film, BBC Persian has been talking to people who have passed through the courts over the past thirty years, as well as to their families, to lawyers and human rights activists.
