Toodeh Party Founders Escape From Prison

By: Mir M.Hosseini

A person in military suit presented himself as the representative of the military court at the Ghasr Prison and took away some of the high ranking members of the Toodeh communist party in a military vehicle with him. Toodeh had been banned since the terror attempt on the last Shah in 1948 and their founders arrested for conspiracy. Toodeh party is one of the oldest parties in Iran founded at the beginning of the 20th century after the Bolshevik revolution, however it's activities took place underground except some short periods. During the 1979 revolution, Toodeh participated actively in overthrowing the Shah and it continued it's activities for three years. But it was banned again and Dr. Kianouri, the same person escaping Ghasr Prison was arrested again.
