Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee brutalized and taken by force to Ward 2A of Evin.
Qarchak Prison authorities accompanied by some 20 male and female guards entered Ward 8 on Sunday, December 13, 2020. They brutalized political prisoners in this ward by batons and stun guns. Then, several guards took Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee by her hair and dragged her on the floor, saying she should be transferred to the IRGC Intelligence Ward 2A of Evin Prison.
The IRGC Intelligence summoned political prisoner Golrokh Iraee to Ward 2A of Evin Prison on Monday, December 7, 2020, without mentioning any reason.
The IRGC Intelligence said in the summon that Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee must be transferred for one week to Ward 2A of Evin Prison to undergo investigations.
Golrolkh Ebrahimi Iraee was imprisoned in Evin on October 16, 2015, for writing an unpublished book against stoning. During her time in prison, a new file was trumped up against her, according to which she was sentenced to more imprisonment.
After an 81-day hunger strike, Golrokh Iraee was finally released from prison on April 8, 2019, after completing her first sentence, but had to deposit bail for her new prison sentence. Shortly afterwards, Ms. Iraee was rearrested and taken to Qarchak Prison to serve her 3 years and 7 months’ prison term.
Ms. Iraee’s family are extremely concerned about the summoning of their daughter, particularly that only one year remains from her time in prison.
Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee has been deprived of calling or visiting her husband during her new round of imprisonment in Qarchak Prison. Political prisoner Arash Sadeghi who suffers from chondrosarcoma (bone cancer) is detained in Gohardasht Prison of Karaj (a.k.a. Rajaishahr). According to the regime’s laws, members of families who are simultaneously detained are allowed to have family visits even if they are detained in different jails.
