One of the Iranian regime’s agencies has confiscated the house belonging to political prisoner Fatemeh Mossanna and her imprisoned husband, Hassan Sadeqi detained in Evin and Gohardasht prisons, respectively.
Ten days ago, the same agency seized the business belonging to the couple.
Iman Sadeqi, the couple’s son, said, “After confiscating a large portion of our properties, they have now confiscated our family’s only place of residence. According to the Penal Code, the court cannot seize a property the confiscation of which deprives the spouse, children and other persons under the guardianship of a convict from food, clothing and housing.”
Iman Sadeqi added that his parents suffer from various illnesses and need to receive medical care, but judicial authorities do not cooperate and do not allow his parents to go to hospital while he has already made the arrangement at his own expense.
Fatemeh Mossanna and Hassan Sadeqi were supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) before they get married and were both imprisoned in the 1980s.
Hassan Sadeqi was only 15 when he was arrested and imprisoned for six years. Fatemeh Mossanna, 13, and her mother, Ferdows Maboubi, were arrested and imprisoned for two and four years.
Three brothers of Fatemeh Mossanna called Ali, Mostafa and Morteza, as well as her sister-in-law were sentenced to death and executed shortly after. Ali Mossanna was executed while his wife and two daughters aged 4 and 6 were in prison.
Three decades later, the couple were arrested on January 28, 2013, along with their 16-year-old son and imprisoned in Evin. Their son was released shortly afterwards, but the couple remained under interrogation for a long time for holding funeral ceremony for Hassan Sadeqi’s father who had died at Camp Liberty, Iraq, where the PMOI members resided.
Fatemeh Mossanna and her husband, Hassan Sadeqi, were each subsequently sentenced to 15 years in prison, on April 9, 2014, by the 26th Branch of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran on the charge of having contacts with the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran.
