Iran: New charges brought against Atena Daemi

New charges have been brought against jailed civil rights activist Atena Daemi in the Moghadasi Court because she went on hunger strike in April.

The new charges are made upon a complaint filed against her by the Warden of Evin Prison and head of the medical clinic in Evin for “disrupting prison order and insulting agents.”

On Monday July 26, Atena Daemi was transferred from the Women’s Ward in Evin to the 4th Branch of the Prosecutor’s Office of Evin to be questioned by interrogator Hassani.

While defending herself, Ms. Daemi asked the interrogator to summon her trusted doctor to testify regarding her health conditions now and when she was on a hunger strike.
