Maryam Naseem Naghash Zargaran, a Christian political prisoner in Iran, was returned to Evin Prison as her stay in a hospital was not extended and had received threats from the public prosecutor in Tehran to return.
She was returned to Evin despite the fact that her hospitalization period prescribed by physicians was not over.
Maryam, who has already spent 30 months in Evin prison because of her religious beliefs, was first summoned to a Ministry of Intelligence office and interrogated in March 2011.
Following her arrest, she was transferred to Evin Prison for fingerprinting. She was held in the notorious Evin prison without any explanation, and was interrogated for five days. She was then condemned to four years behind bars with charges of assembly and measures against national security.
