Golrokh Iraee detained in limbo despite six months in Evin Prison
Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee remains in limbo in Evin Prison despite nearly six months past her arrest.
Security forces violently arrested Golrokh Iraee at her home on September 26, 2022. They ransacked her residence and confiscated some of her personal belongings.
In late October, Branch 2 of Evin’s Prosecutor’s Office informed Ms. Iraee regarding “assembly and collusion” and “propaganda against the state.”
Golrokh Iraee had been previously arrested and detained for her activities. In the latest case against her, the 26th Branch of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran sentenced her to three years and seven months in prison. The court also deprived her of membership in any group or party for two years.
The Revision Court later upheld the above verdict without convening any hearing.
Based on Article 134 of the clerical regime’s Penal Code, two years and one month of the verdict was applicable.
In April 2021, Golrokh Iraee was sentenced to one year in absentia and banned for two years from joining any group or party and leaving the country. Ms. Iraee had not informed of the convening of such a trial session.
Golrokh Iraee was finally released from the Prison of Amol on May 9, 2022.
