The Revolutionary Court of Sanandaj sentenced Kajal Nasri
The Revolutionary Court of Sanandaj sentenced a Kurdish cultural activist, Kajal Nasri, to 5 years in prison. Kajal Nasri is charged with cooperation and membership in Kurdish Parties.
No information was available on her, and she was denied family visits, legal advice, and access to a lawyer.
Kajal Nasri was released on bail of 100 million Tomans almost a month after her arrest.
Kajal Nasri was temporarily released on January 10, 2022, with an electronic bracelet, only after her mother held a two-day strike outside the Intelligence Department of Sanandaj.
She had been repeatedly summoned to the Intelligence Department of Sanandaj in the past years and undergone hours of interrogation.
Condition of political prisoner Zohreh Sarv
Zohreh Sarv was returned from the hospital to Evin Prison without completing her treatment. Zohreh was sent to Taleghani Hospital in Tehran on September 10, 2022, in dire health conditions. Political prisoner Zohreh Sarv had a nasal endoscopy done in the hospital. The hospital also took a sample test of her internal infection last week, but the result is not yet provided. The antibiotics have not cured her condition.
An informed source said the specialists found from the pimples on Zohreh’s cheeks and forehead that the use of antibiotics has affected her liver. Zohreh needs to take medicine to solve this problem.
Because of the infection inside her body, her sinuses must be emptied. The accumulation of infection behind her right eyelid has forced her eye shut. The incorrect diagnosis by the clinic doctor in Evin Prison made her illness worse.
Zohreh Sarv had earlier contracted the Coronavirus in Evin Prison. At the prison clinic, they wrongly concluded she had caught a cold and had been deprived of Covid-19 treatment for a long time. After a lengthy time, in subsequent tests, it became clear the Coronavirus had infected and remained in her body without proper treatment.
Ms. Sarv cannot receive her third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine because of her illness. Her family is concerned, fearing the infection would spread to their daughter’s heart and lungs.
Zohreh Sarv is an online activist who contracted an infectious disease in August 2022 while in prison. She was denied access to medical treatment and the right to health.
Zohreh Sarv is currently serving time in Evin Prison with a 5-year sentence.
