Armita Abbasi Released from Kachooie Prison

On February 7, 2023, Armita Abbasi, arrested during nationwide protests, was released from Kachooie Prison, Karaj.

Details on her release are still unknown. However, she was likely released due to the recent pardon for jailed protestors.

In late September 2022, security forces arrested Abbasi in Karaj and jailed her in Kachooie prison.

On January 2, 2023, she and fourteen other female jailed protestors went on a hunger strike.

Her first hearing was held by the Karaj Revolutionary Court on January 29, 2023. According to her lawyer, Shahla Orouji, ” Abbasi faced three charges two of the least serious allegations are propaganda against the regime and assembly and collusion against national security.”
