Once again, political prisoner Fatemeh Mossanna was deprived of visiting her husband, Hassan Sadeqi, who is also imprisoned on political grounds, in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj.
On Sunday, November 3, 2019, Amin Vaziri, deputy prosecutor observing political prisoners, ordered cancellation of a visit between political prisoner Fatemeh Mossanna and her husband, Hassan Sadeqi, because he did not agree to wear the prison’s garb, handcuffs and shackles during the transfer.
Mrs. Mossanna has met her husband only three times since February 2019. The imprisoned couple were supposed to see each other in October, but their visit was cancelled for the same reason.
Fatemeh Mossanna was imprisoned for two years in 1981 at the age of 13, and her three brothers were executed by the clerical regime in the 1980s.
Fatemeh Mossanna and her husband, Hassan Sadeqi, were arrested on April 9, 2014, during the funeral ceremony of Mr. Sadeqi’s father who was a member of the opposition People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK). She has been imprisoned in the Women’s Ward of Evin since.
In another development, imprisoned student activist Leila Hosseinzadeh was not allowed to receive medical care.
Leila Hosseinzadeh is serving her 30-month prison sentence in the Women’s Ward of Evin. On October 21, 2019, she was sent to Taleghani Hospital with a three-day delay to receive treatment for a broken finger. There, she was operated on and doctors inserted a pin to fix her finger which needed to be removed after a few weeks. After two weeks, prison officials are refusing her the opportunity to go to hospital to have the pin removed.
Leila Hosseinzadeh was the secretary of the students’ Central Council at Tehran University. She was arrested during the December 2017-January 2018 uprising and protests and subsequently sentenced to six years in prison and a two-year ban on leaving the country. The Revision Court, however, commuted her sentence to 30 months on June 24, 2019.
