Saha Mortezai, the former head of the Student Union of the University of Tehran, was taken to Evin Prison to serve her sentence. Earlier, on November 21, 2022, security forces arrested her violently at her workplace.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, former student union activist Saha Mortezai was taken to Evin Prison to serve her six-year sentence.
On November 17, 2019, IRGC Intelligence arrested her at a student dormitory in Tehran and took her to Ward 2-A of Evin Prison. After a while, she went on a hunger strike in jail in protest against an excessive bail she could not afford. She ended her hunger strike after 22 days. On January 22, 2020, she was released on bail.
In November 2020, the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced Mortezai to six years. This verdict was upheld on appeal. According to Iran’s Student Union, three years and eight months for one charge are enforceable to her.
