Namegh Mahmoudi Rajai-Shahr Prison in Karaj, Tehran, Iran

HRANA News Agency – Namegh Mahmoudi the Kurdish political prisoner who has been imprisoned in Rajaie Shahr prison, has been transferred to an unknown location since two weeks ago.

According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Namegh Mahmoudi, 62,  the political prisoner imprisoned in  hall No.12 of Rajaie Shahr prison of Karaj has been transferred to an unkown location since August 14 and there is no news about his condition. 

Meanwhile his family and relatives have no information of his condition.

One of political prisoners who wants to remain anonymous told HRANA reporter “Probably he has been transferred to the ward 209 of Evin but his family has no information of his condition neither and because of his critical health condition we all are concern.”

It is worth mentioning Namegh Mahmoudi is suffering from cataract since a while ago and he is in danger of blindness but the authorities did nothing for his medical treatment.

Namegh Mahmoudi, 62, was arrested on April 5, 2012 together with three of his children.  The Intelligence Agency originally kept him in a prison in the city of Sanandaj, Kurdistan Province.  He was later taken to Ward 209 of Evin Prison where he was interrogated.

Eventually, he was transferred to Rajai-Shahr Prison and his three sons were released after six months of being under arrest.

Namegh has been kept under arrest on charge of enmity against God through collaboration with one of the Kurdish parties.
