TWICE a week, on Monday and Wednesday in the black of night, prisoners were woken in silence.
A list of names were called and they were told they were headed out, to another facility in the city, which was good news for many.
Instead, the men were piled into trucks known as “meat fridges” and taken to an execution room. After one minute of standing in front of a “judge”, a noose was placed around their necks in the first sign that this was the moment of their death.
“They kept them [hanging] there for 10 to 15 minutes. Some didn’t die because they are light. For the young ones, their weight wouldn’t kill them. The officers’ assistants would pull them down and break their necks,” said a former judge who witnessed such events.
Former military officer Hamid, who was being detained on the floor above, said he would hear the nightmarish noises from below.
“If you put your ears on the floor, you could hear the sound of a kind of gurgling. This would last around 10 minutes … We were sleeping on top of the sound of people choking to death. This was normal for me then,” he said.
