HRANA News Agency – Maryam Shafipour, the imprisoned student in women’s ward in Evin prison collapsed and was transferred to health clinic of prison following continuous palpitation she had during last week.


According to the report of Human Rights activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), the prison officials ignored her acute health condition despite the prison doctor’s diagnosis that she should urgently be sent for MRA.


Besides, Maryam Shafipour has been suffering from severe toothache during last couple of weeks without being referred to dental clinic or being helped with her pain.


This student activist’s second court session has been arranged for Wednesday, the first day of year 2014.

A reliable source says: “All these accusations are false and there is no real poof and evidence in Maryam Shafipour‘s case.”


“All interrogations and the way that they are treating her are exactly similar to the time of presidential election in 2009”. Maryam Shafipour’s father said to Kalame.


A close person to Maryam Shafipour said: “Although she is getting weaker physically but she is still positive and standing against accusations by denying them.”


Maryam Shafipour was arrested in last August and sent to Evin prison under surveillance of Intelligence and Security office of Iran. She then was transferred to women’s ward in the same prison.
