Golrokh Iraee Still in Detention after Five Months

Former political prisoner Golrokh Iraee is detained in the women’s ward of Evin Prison for over five months.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, Golrokh Iraee is still in detention at Evin Prison for over 170 days.

On September 26, 2022, security forces arrested Iraee violently at her home in Tehran. They also searched the house and seized some of her belonging.

In October 2022, she was arraigned and notified of the charges of “assembly and collusion against national security” and “propaganda against the regime.”

Iraee faced other arrests and convictions on prior occasions. In the last case, the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced her to three years and seven months, which was upheld later on appeal. Applying Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, two years and one month was enforceable.
Also earlier, in April 2021, the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced her in absentia to one year and additional punishments for “propaganda against the regime.” She was released on Amol Perison on May 9, 2022.
