Political Prisoners Kamyar Fakoor and Jafar Ebrahimi Face New Legal Case

In response to a complaint filed by the Prisons and Security and Corrective Measures Organization of Tehran Province, Kamyar Fakoor and Jafar Ebrahimi, political prisoners held in Qezel Hesar Prison, find themselves entangled in a new legal case.

Their legal representative, Erfan Karam Veisi, has officially conveyed that his clients are now facing charges of “disturbing public order and safety” and “insulting prison officials.”

Notably, Fakoor and Ebrahimi were recently transferred from Evin Prison to Qezel Hesar Prison, Karaj.

A while ago, Fakoor and Ebrahimi were transferred from Evin Prison to Qezel Hesar Prison, Karaj.

Fakoor’s arrest occurred on November 6, 2022, during nationwide protests. Subsequently, the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced him to eight months in prison, in addition to reactivating his prior eight-month suspended jail term.

Ebrahimi, a dedicated teacher union activist, was taken into custody on April 30, 2022, and incarcerated in Ward 209 of Evin Prison. In late October 2022, the Tehran Revolutionary Court issued a four-year sentence on charges of “assembly and collusion against national security” and an additional one-year term for “propaganda against the regime.” Moreover, Ebrahimi received a two-year ban on leaving the country and from participating in political and civil organizations. His sentence, which included four years of enforceable imprisonment, was upheld upon appeal.
