3 female prisoners, Akram Mahdavi, 46, Fereshteh Abdulmaleki 36, and Zohre Lavastati 36, are faced with imminent danger of execution after serving years in the notorious Gharchak Varamin prison.
Simultaneously, Basima Al-Jabouri, a 39 year old Iraqi woman and mother of two, which is also being held in Gharchak Varamin prison, has staged a hunger strike since April 8th, 2015 to protest ban on access to medical care. Prison guards have threatened to take her to solitary confinement, with harsher conditions, if she continues her strike. She is constantly faced with harassment, threats and torture, especially by a female guard by the name of “Khaki”.
While calling upon all international human rights organizations and women’s rights activists for the prevention of Mrs. Mahdavi, Abdulmaleki, and Lavastati’s executions, the Iranian resistance calls for an independent investigative delegation to be sent to Iran to examine the appalling conditions of female prisoners in the country.
At the same time, the Iranian Resistance condemns the misogynist regime ruling Iran being granted a 4-year membership in the “United Nations Commission on the Status of Women” and considers it a disgrace for the United Nations to grant membership to the Mullahs’ misogynist regime which has institutionalized gender segregation into law and publically defends stoning, execution, torture, acid attacks against women, in an institute which is responsible for defending women’s rights and liberties.
