Political prisoner banned from mourning father’s death in prison

According to reports, prison guards in Gohardasht (Rajayi Shahr) Prison in Karaj prevented a memorial ceremony for the late father of political prisoner Karim Poursamadi in cellblock 2 in this prison. 

About four weeks ago, the Intelligence Agency called Poursamadi’s father and told him that his son would be hanged in the morning. His father subsequently had a brain stroke and suddenly passed away. 

Notably, because there is no evidence against Poursamadi, his detention order had been changed to a 50 million toman (about 50,000 dollar) bail by the Revolutionary Court but he has not been released from prison.
