Seven years after being arrested in the 2009 uprising in Iran, Evin political prisoner Reyhaneh Haj Ibrahim has not had even one day of furlough.
Parvaneh Taheri, Reyhaneh’s mother, told the media that her daughter was first sentenced to death and then to 15 years imprisonment but she has not had even one day of leave from prison since 2009.
Reyhaneh Haj Ibrahim was arrested on December 27, 2009, the height of popular protests which called for regime change in Iran. She was arrested and detained along with her husband, Ahmad Daneshpour Moghaddam, her in laws and a close relative of the family.
She has suffered many illnesses while in jail including intestinal colitis and nervous pain in her back and legs. Prison officials, however, do not allow her to receive any treatment in a city hospital.
