International Liberty Association: Mina Rad, a poetess and writer, has been transferred to the notorious Qarchak Prison to serve her prison sentence.
Mina Rad is from the city of Doroud in Lorestan Province, western Iran. The Lor poetess and writer was summoned to the media and culture court on 4 July 2020. The court tried her on the charge of “propaganda against the state” and sentenced her to two months in prison and a suspended sentence of 8 months in jail.
The Revision Court upheld her sentence on 23 August 2020. She was transferred to Qarchak Prison on 24 September 2020.
The Intelligence Department of Doroud summoned and interrogated Mina Rad during the protests in December 2017-January 2018. Although the Intelligence Department later released Ms. Rad, they continued to harass her by constantly calling her on the phone.
The Intelligence Department summoned her again on 15 July 2018 and interrogated her. The interrogators threatened and insulted her. She was released on the same day.
