Christian prisoner Maryam Naghash Zargaran returned to the women’s ward of Evin on June 27, 2016, without completing her medical treatment.
The Prosecutor’s Office refused to extend the medical leave for this severely ill prisoner of conscience and forced her back to prison by threatening to confiscate her bail.
Maryam Naghash Zargaran was granted a medical leave on June 6, 2016, after 11 days of hunger strike when she protested the undetermined state of her case, deprivation from medical treatment, and cancellation of her conditional release.
This new Christian convert was sentenced to 4 years imprisonment on the charge of acting against national security. Her charges have not been officially relayed to her, but she is presently serving the four years in Evin’s women’s ward.
