Iran: Political prisoner’s mother and sister arrested in front of Evin Prison
Masoumeh Nemati and Hanieh Daemi mother and sister of political prisoner Atena Daemi were arrested today in front of Tehran’s Evin Prison.
The two accompanied by a number of human rights activists had staged a rally outside Tehran’s Evin Prison, demanding the release of recently detained protesters.
The conditions of political prisoners Atena Daemi and Golrokh Iraee are reported as critical on their 11th day of hunger strike which has been turned to dry since four days ago.
Glorak Iraee suffered a heart attack on Monday evening while Atena Daemi suffers fluctuations in blood pressure, according to Hossein Daemi, Atena’s father.
Mr. Daemi said the officials are not responding to his inquiries. He holds the Prosecutor and his assistant accountable if his daughter is harmed in any way.
Last night tens of thousands of people took part in in an internet campaign supporting Atena Daemi and Golorkh Iraee.
