Female political prisoner Sakineh Parvaneh has been moved to the Central Prison of Mashhad, also known as Vakilabad Prison.
Sakineh Parvaneh was taken out of the Prison of Quchan at 10 p.m. Sunday night, December 13, 2020. She was taken to the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office of Mashhad, capital of Razavi Khorasan Province in northeastern Iran. Then, in Monday morning, December 14, she was taken to the quarantine ward of the Central Prison of Mashhad.
Kurdish political prisoner Sakineh Parvaneh was deprived of having family visitations during the time she was incarcerated in the Prison of Quchan.
Sakineh Parvaneh was born in 1988. In early autumn of 2019, security agents arrested her because she had visited her family in Soleimaniya, in the Kurdistan of Iraq. They took her to the Iran-Iraq border. She was detained for 10 days in the detention centers of Marivan and Sanandaj. She was subsequently transferred to the Evin Prison in Tehran.
She underwent harsh interrogations under psychological and physical torture in Ward 2A, Ward 209 and the women’s ward of Evin. During this time, she was deprived of having visitations.
In March 2020, after she wrote graffiti on the walls of Evin, she was sent to the notorious Qarchak Prison where she was detained in solitary confinement for four days with handcuffs and foot cuffs. Then, prison guards took her to Aminabad Psychiatric Hospital in Shahr-e Rey. After 25 days in Aminabad, female political prisoner Sakineh Parvaneh was returned to the quarantine ward of Qarchak Prison.
On May 25, 2020, she went on hunger strike to protest being sentenced to 5 years in prison, banned for two years from membership in political groups, and detained in conditions where prisoners were not separated by category of their crimes.
On July 4, 2020, she was returned to Evin Prison while she bore scars and bruises from being beaten. In August, she was sentenced to another two years in prison for “rioting in prison.”
Female political prisoner Sakineh Parvaneh went on hunger strike several times in Evin.
On October 27, 2020, she was relocated from the women’s ward of Evin to the Prison of Quchan. Last month, she sewed her lips and went on hunger strike for 20 days in protest to the probability of being banished to the Prison of Isfahan. But in these very conditions, she was brutalized and beaten by guards.
