Deplorable condition in Evin Prison’s female cellblock; 3 female prisoners might be hanged

There have been reports from Evin Prison about the unsuitable condition of prisoners in the cold winter temperatures,  and the possibility of the execution of three female prisoners. There is no warm water in the Public Female Section and the quality of food is unsuitable.

There are also reports from the Public Female Section that the death sentence for Kobra Rahmanpour, Lida Tavakoli and Sogand Jahani, who is under 20 years old and is jailed for killing her husband, will be carried out sooner than scheduled.

There are other reports that a woman named Ladan Mostofi, 45, is in a solitary cell and has been charged with ‘enmity with God’. She has been kept in solitary for a long time. (Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Jan. 16, 2011)
