Evin Prosecutor’s Office rejects the transfer of critically ill political prisoners
Maryam Akbari Monfared requested to be transferred from Semnan Prison to Evin Prison in Tehran, but the Evin Prosecutor’s Office refused. The Evin Prosecutor’s Office declined the request despite the Semnan Prison administration’s support. Maryam Akbari Monfared has repeatedly asked to be moved to a jail close to where her family lives in Tehran. Because of her GI issues, Ms. Akbari Monfared is not getting the medication and care she needs. This political prisoner is in critical condition, according to a previous report by the NCRI Women’s Committee.
She receives harassment during phone calls and visits. Without any available cooling equipment or shade, she meets her family outside in the summer sun. Another prisoner, Zahra Mohammadi is imprisoned in the women’s section of the Sanandaj Correctional Center where she will serve her five-year sentence. The separation of crimes principle is broken by her detention in the facility. Despite having GI issues, same as Ms. Akbari Monfared is denied medical care and time off from work.
The Sanandaj Department of Intelligence and those in charge of the women’s ward of the Correction Center are preventing this teacher’s dispatch on medical leave, according to the most recent reports. In the Iranian Kurdistan Province’s capital city of Sanandaj, Zahra Mohammadi resides. She graduated from the University of Birjand with a master’s in geopolitics.
On May 23, 2019, agents from the Intelligence Department entered Ms. Mohammadi’s home and took her into custody. After six months, she was granted a 700 million Toman bail and released on a temporary, conditional basis.
On January 8, 2022, she was moved to the women’s ward of the Sanandaj Correctional Center to complete her five-year sentence.
