Political prisoner Soheila Mohammadi is in serious condition after she committed suicide in protest of being denied the right to use leave.
Amid the Iranian regime’s propaganda about releasing political prisoners, the clerical regime’s prisons are packed with political prisoners.
A 30-year-old Kurdish political prisoner, Soheila Mohammadi, who has been imprisoned for two years in the Central Prison of Urmia, committed suicide as a protest against her denial of the right to use leave on Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
Ms. Mohammadi’s health condition is unstable, and she is in danger due to the injury caused by the stab wound to the left chest area.
Political prisoner Soheila Mohammadi, from Salmas, was arrested by IRGC intelligence in the fall of 2020 and sentenced to 5 years in prison on charges of membership in the Hayat Azad Kurdistan Party (PJAK) by the 1st Branch of the Revolutionary Court of Urmia.
Political prisoner Soheila Mohammadi has been imprisoned in the women’s ward of Urmia Central Prison without the right to use leave.
Three days after the injury, she is still being kept in Urmia Central Prison’s infirmary and has been denied transfer to medical centers. She stabbed herself in the chest (near her heart) and lost a lot of blood.
Meanwhile, the Revolutionary Court of Bukan has sentenced another female activist to five years in prison. Zhila Hojabri has been charged with cooperation and membership in the Hayat Azad Kurdistan Party (PJAK). The sentence has been officially communicated to her.
Zhila Hojabri, from Marivan, was arrested by the Intelligence Department forces in Bukan in July. After a month, Ms. Hojabri was transferred from the women’s ward of Urmia Central Prison to Sanandaj Correctional Center and subsequently released temporarily on bail until the end of the proceedings.
