Political prisoner Sepideh Qolian, who is serving her period of leave from prison, published on Wednesday, September 22 (September 22), a copy of a memorandum to summon her to the Iranian judiciary, after the Bushehr prison administration filed a complaint against her.
She summoned the Revolutionary Court in Bushehr, southern Iran, and was accused of “spreading lies” and carrying out “propaganda activities against the regime,” according to the summons.
“The Iranian regime has proven once again that the response to demands for justice and truth is repression and revenge,” Qalian wrote on Twitter.
On September 9, Qalian published tweets about the situation of the women’s ward in Bushehr Prison, southern Iran, and the grave violations of human rights in this prison.
And she wrote on her account on Twitter, Thursday, September 9: “When I was transferred last year to this prison, I knew that I would face a forgotten hell, but the current brutality in this prison did not even enter my imagination. to the worst forms of torture, and the inhumane conditions of being imprisoned women.”
It seems that the subject of the Bushehr prison administration’s complaint is due to Sepideh Qalian’s disclosure of the conditions of this prison.
Qalian has been serving her period of leave from prison, since last June 18, due to her infection with the Corona virus in prison.
The political prisoner, who was sentenced to five years in prison in the case of protests by the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane Company in southwestern Iran, was transferred to Bushehr Prison last March.
In her report, Qalian described Bushehr Central Prison as “a place close to the end of the world,” and referred to the cases in the prison, including “temporary marriages with some needy women with prisoners in the ward designated for financial issues, in coordination with the ward’s official.” She also referred to the obligation to wear Hijab, whether in bed, in addition to many cases of torture.
In response to Qolian’s recent statements, Mohammad Mahdi Haj Mohammadi, head of Iran’s Prison Organization, described the statements about the conditions of the women’s ward in Bushehr Central Prison, describing the statements as “amazing allegations” and promising to look into the case.
The head of the Prisons Organization said that he had dispatched the Director General of the Inspection Center in this organization in order to verify the authenticity or incorrectness of this report.
This Iranian official had also previously promised to investigate sexual harassment that occurred in Tehran prison, according to the reports received, but the results of the investigations have not yet been announced.
