The medical clinic doctor has told her that her condition was very dangerous and that her heart might also become stiff and swollen at any moment. Golrokh Iraee went on a hunger strike on February 3 in protest to the violation of the principle of separation of crimes when she was transferred from Evin Prison to Qarchak Prison in Varamin.
