The judiciary of the mullahs’ regime continues to file cases and issue prison sentences, as well as inhumane punishments, to protestors in the widespread demonstrations.
Tahereh Bejervani, the widow of Ali Fotouhi, who was shot and killed by security forces during the November 2019 uprising, was arrested on December 21, 2022, at her workplace in the Tehran suburb of Shahrak-e Qods.
Tahereh Bejervani’s detention has been extended for another month due to her refusal to submit to interrogation and make forced confessions.
Tahereh Bejervani called her family on January 1 to inform them that she was being held in Evin Prison’s Ward 209 at the time. She claimed she had only been interrogated once during her detention. According to social media reports, security forces pressed Ms. Bejervani to accept fabricated charges.

“Women prisoners who break the rules of the prison are sent to the Aminabad sanatorium. Death row inmates are secretly executed, prisoners starve and suffer from lack of hygiene,” the report reads.
Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman, died on September 15 after suffering terrible beatings while being held by the morality police for not being “improperly veiled.” The tragic death of Mahsa is just the most recent example of the appalling misogynistic conditions that Iranian women must endure. A recent report from the Iran Human Rights Society (IranHRS) contains some shocking details about the appalling treatment of female prisoners in the Varamin, close to Tehran, Qarchak prison. The prison, which is a facility for punishing inmates, has a division for more severe punishment.
The story of the Iranian people’s suffering under the ruling theocracy is endless. The news from Iran fills one with sadness. People are selling their body parts, children are looking for food in the garbage, and the rising number of suicides in Iran is just the tip of the iceberg.
The 10th of September was World Suicide Prevention Day, and suicides in Iran are on the rise. “We had 4200 suicides last year,” Amir Jalali, chairman of the Suicide Prevention Committee of the Scientific Association of Psychiatrists, told the state-run Hamshahri online on September 9. Jalali attributed Iran’s rising suicide rate to unstable social conditions, severe loss of social capital, rising poverty and unemployment, and discrimination.
On July 18, 2022, Sahar F. and her daughter, Tina Gh., were arrested in Mashhad’s travelers’ terminal for arguing with the bus driver and police station agents. She was arrested and taken to the Detective Police Station, where she was held for several days. She is accused of “confronting government agents” and “insulting Islamic Republic of Iran officials.”
A prisoner named Sahar F., along with her 12-year-old daughter Tina Gh was tied to a bed in the dispensary of Mashhad’s Vakilabad Prison for 24 hours. Their hands and feet were restrained on the bed. On the evening of August 4, the mother and daughter were returned to the women’s ward of Vakilabad Prison. The 12-year-old girl was arrested solely because she was with her mother when she argued with regime agents. She is currently being held in Vakilabad Prison.
The desire of women to be able to choose their own clothing, according to Ali Khamenei, is a Western ruse that must be exposed.
With many Iranian regime officials warning people about new repressive orders, particularly against youths and women, the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, defended these orders in his most recent meeting with Friday prayer leaders and praised the actions of the regime’s so-called guidance patrol, which is targeting the country’s women.
Resistance Units installed posters, and placards sprayed graffiti, wrote the remarks by the Resistance leadership, and laid wreaths on the martyrs’ graves on Friday and Saturday, July 29 and 30.
To mark the anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 MEK supporters and Resistance Units installed posters, and placards sprayed graffiti, wrote the remarks by the Resistance leadership, and laid wreaths on the martyrs’ graves on Friday and Saturday, July 29 and 30. A fatwa, issued at the time by the regime’s founder, Ruhollah Khomeini, ordered the execution of all MEK members who remained steadfast in their allegiance to the Organization.
Women’s rights and their place in society serve as a barometer for determining how democratic a nation is. Iran, in contrast to other nations, encourages, legalizes, and practices misogyny.
The Iranian regime has launched a repressive campaign to “enjoin virtue and prohibit vice” in its latest misogynistic effort. This “chastity and hijab” plan was approved by the regime’s Supreme Security Council in 2005. The mullahs had implemented this oppressive measure for years and had to stop it as they feared intense and widespread public backlash.
With the execution of this Baluchi woman, the total number of women executed in Iran since the summer of 2013 has risen to 132.

Fatemeh Mosanna, a political prisoner, was returned to Evin Prison on April 3, 2022, on the order of Evin’s deputy prosecutor, Amin Vaziri.
While she was in critical health, she was transferred to Evin Prison. Fatemeh Mosanna, 53, has been afflicted with an intestinal infection that has rendered her incapable of enduring incarceration. She has also been diagnosed with intestinal fever as a result of years of detention under deplorable food conditions and high levels of anxiety. Fatemeh Mosanna also has liver problems and colitis in her intestines.
While dozens of other repressive agencies and institutions operate in Iran, their core duties and responsibilities are nothing more than cracking down on the people, especially women and youth, the Iranian regime’s Red Crescent is being enlisted to preserve “chastity and hijab.”
The ‘Helal Ahmar’ (Arabic for Red Crescent) Organization of the Iranian regime has been officially added to the regime’s massive repressive apparatus. State-run media reported the establishment of a group called “spreading the culture of chastity and hijab” in this so-called relief organization, which was supposed to be a non-governmental organization (NGO) and a member of the International Red Cross Movement that saves people’s lives and cares for safety.
