Erfan Naderizadeh Rajai-Shahr Prison in Karaj, Tehran, Iran

HRANA News Agency – Rajaei Shahr prison officials rejected the request of an imprisoned Sunni father and his son to be transferred to the same ward. Taymoor and Erfan Naderizadeh said that due to differences of visit days for different wards and long distances between Sanandaj and Karaj, their family could not afford to travel twice a week for visit.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), the vice executive officer of Rajaei Shahr has responded to them, that the prosecutor’s representative was deciding about this issue.

Apart from family ties, the visit days of the wards that these prisoners are currently being kept in, are on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Taymoor and Erfan Naderizadeh had requested in a letter to prison authorities to be transferred to the same ward.

Taymoor Naderizadeh is a Sunni prisoner who was sentenced to death on charge of blasphemy, but it is said that his sentence has been reduced in the supreme court to 10 years. However, he is not officially informed yet, and it has been said to him only verbally. He is being kept in hall number 10 of ward number 4 of Rajaei Shahr prison.

Erfan Naderi has been sentenced to 8 years in prison with the same charge and is currently serving his sentence in ward number 7 of Rajaei Shahr prison.
