Political prisoner Zahra Safaei in dire health conditions

Zahra SafareiPolitical prisoner Zahra Safaei is in dire health conditions after suffering a heart stroke and undergoing heart surgery. She is being detained despite the forensic’s confirmation that she cannot endure imprisonment.
Zahra Safaei has undergone a heart surgery in a civic hospital after hinderances by prison authorities. In the hospital, her hands and feet were chained to the bed.
She was having heart problems and pain in the chest for two months but the authorities of Qarchak Prison ignored her conditions. Ultimately, she suffered a heart stroke on August 31.
Despite the fact that she cannot endure prison conditions after the heart surgery, the authorities have returned her to Qarchak and detained her alongside ordinary prisoners, which is a violation of the principle of separation of crimes.
Security forces arrested Zahra Safaei in Tehran on February 24, 2020. They also arrested Parastoo Mo’ini, her daughter, as well as Forough Taghipour and her mother, Nasim Jabbari. They were subsequently transferred to the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center (Ward 209 of Evin Prison). Parastoo Mo’ini and Forough Taghipour were transferred to Qarchak Prison in early March 2020.

On June 28, 2020, Zahra Safaei had been temporarily released from Qarchak Prison, until the end of her trial, on bail of 300 million Toman. But she was rearrested on July 26, 2020, when she referred to the Prosecutor’s Office of Evin Prison to review her case and that of her daughter. On July 27, 2020, she was transferred to Qarchak Prison.

She has been threatened to death by dangerous criminals enticed by the prison’s warden.
