Female prisoner commits suicide as a result of intolerable conditions in Gohardasht Prison

According to reports, a female prisoner in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj committed suicide to escape the medieval conditions in this prison.

On Monday, November 22, a prisoner identified as Leila in the female cellblock in this prison committed suicide to escape the abuse and medieval conditions in this prison which is much worse than conditions in the men’s cellblock. She reportedly died because she was not taken to the infirmary on time and did not receive medical attention.

Murder and suicide has turned into a common issue in Iranian prisons especially in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj and almost every week there are reports of suicides or murders in this prison. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran – Nov. 22, 2010)
