International Liberty Association: Human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been transferred to hospital from Evin Prison.
Due to suffering from heart problems, Nasrin Sotoudeh was transferred to Tehran’s Taleghani Hospital, on Saturday, 19 September.
There is no further information available on her conditions.
Nasrin Sotoudeh has been on hunger strike since 11 August 2020, and her physical condition is further deteriorating with every passing day.
She started her hunger strike in protest to the Iranian Judiciary’s refusal to send political prisoners on leave during the pandemic and the dire sanitary conditions in prisons.
Nasrin Sotoudeh, human rights lawyer, spent three years in prison from 2011 to 2013. She was rearrested in June 2018 and has been imprisoned in the women’s ward of Evin Prison ever since.
