International Liberty Association– Prison authorities have blocked Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee from contact with her civil activist jailed husband, Arash Sadeghi.
Political prisoner Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee, currently detained in Qarchak Prison in Varamin, is denied to visit and call her husband, Arash Sadeghi, a prisoner in Rajai Shahr Prison, in Karaj.
Iraee, who had been serving a six-year prison sentence since October 2016 primarily for writing an unpublished story about stoning in Iran, walked out of Evin Prison in Tehran on 8 April , 2019, after posting bail set at 60 million tomans.
Tehran’s Revolutionary Court examined a new case filed against Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee and Atena Daemi on 18 June 2019, sentencing them to an additional 2.1 years in prison.
According to the order issued by Judge Mohammad Baraei, the head of the Branch One of the prosecutor’s office, Golrokh Iraee was to be transferred to Evin Prison. However, Gholamreza Ziaei, the head of Evin Prison refused to accept Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee in Evin Prison.
Ms Iraee’s husband, Arash Sadeghi, is held in Rajai Shahr prison, in Karaj, in poor health. He is serving a 19-year sentence for his peaceful activities. He suffers from bone cancer (chondrosarcoma) and underwent an operation last year, but was returned to prison before completing his chemotherapy and other essential treatment.
