ILA: Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee

International Liberty Association: Civil rights activist Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee was re-arrested by Iran security forces in her Tehran home, on Saturday 9 November.
Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee, former prisoner, is the wife of Arash Sadegh, political prisoner who has got cancer inside the prison.
According to ILA report, Golrokh was campaigning for Arash Sadegh’s release and his access to much needed medical treatment on Twitter.
Her husband, civil rights activist Arash Sadeghi, has been serving a 15-year prison sentence for peaceful activities since 2016 and is in poor health condition, following a cancer operation last year.

On 18 June, 2019, the Revolutionary Court of Tehran examined a new case filed against Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee and Atena Daemi for their protest to the executions of three Kurdish dissidents.

In mid-July 2019, Judge Iman Afshari of Branch 26 of Revolutionary Court in Tehran sentenced Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee and Atena Daemi to 3.7 years in prison, which is 2 years and one month for “insulting the supreme leader” and 1 year and 6 months, for “propaganda against the state” .

Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee was first arrested by the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Intelligence on 6 September, 2014, along with her husband and two other activists. She served three weeks in the IRGC Intelligence Ward 2-A in Evin and subsequently released on 27 September, 2014, on an 80 million toman bail for her activities in the Face book. Then, she was sentenced to 6 years’ imprisonment on charges of “insulting the sanctities” and “propaganda against the state.”

International Liberty Association had previously reported that; Iraee was released on bail in April 2019 after serving 3.5 years of a six-year prison sentence primarily for writing an unpublished story about stoning in Iran.
