A Prisoner's nightmare!
The civil engineer --
Amir to his friends Reluctantly recalled yesterday his two, six-month terms in an Iranian jail as a political prisoner who was routinely tortured by guards.
"If you were in your cell whistling a good song ... they would hear you and bring you to the torture place," he said after a short address to media attending a United Way of Greater Toronto news conference."
"Sometimes you would say, 'Just kill me. Just execute me.'"
While a world away from those days, the Canadian immigrant still finds it frightening to speak about his ordeal.
Away from the cameras, Amir said he still fears talking about what he went through a decade ago.
"I still have family. People know me (in Iran),"
His three teenage children -- along with his ex-wife -- still live in
Iran. He wants them in Canada.
