Iran: Golrokh Iraee’s father gets to visit her under heavy control

The father of hunger striking political prisoner Golrokh Iraee got to visit his daughter on Sunday, April 8, 2018, under heavy security conditions.

Ms. Iraee has been hospitalized in the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Baghyatollah Hospital in Tehran after some 70 days of wet and dry hunger strike and losing 22 kilograms. She keeps fainting and her life is at risk.

Since coming to, she has avoided accepting IV serum injections and told her father that she would continue her hunger strike.

Earlier on Friday, April 6, the Iraee family had referred to this hospital to visit their daughter but were insulted, threatened and violently turned away.

A large number of political prisoners from Gohardasht Prison in Karaj and the Central Prison of Orumiyeh in northwestern Iran, have sent messages of solidarity to Golrokh Iraee and praised her firm will and determination to insist on her rightful demands.
