Critical Condition of Atena Daemi in Evin Prison of Iran

 Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Atena Daemi, a young civil activist, was arrested by the Revolutionary Guards of Iran at her house on 21 Oct 2014. Furthermore, officials have seized her personal belongings while she was taken to the detention.

Atena was accused of propaganda against the regime of Iran in the Revolutionary Court which chaired by judge Mohammad Mogheyse, and she was declared for the trial date on 24 Jan 2014.

However, her family and own lawyer had appealed to postpone the trial due to the lack of time for more reviews of her case about ten days that is rejected by court as Human Rights activists have acknowledged.

She is kept in Evin prison since her detention in critical condition because of her heart disease, and it is worth noting that she suffers from skin disorders and poor eyesight due to excruciating daily life and torture in the prison.

Atena was transferred to solitary confinement at 2-Alef Sepah ward in Evin prison during her interrogation. She was finally taken to the public ward of women after all the persecution and severe torture she has undergone.

She was reportedly threatened to exile to Gharchak prison in Varamin city that has been refused as her relatives have declared.
