Iran: Golrokh Iraee in critical conditions after 75 days of hunger strike

NCRI WOMEN COMMITTEE, 18 April 2018–Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee is in critical conditions after 75 days of hunger strike and refusing food.

Ms. Iraee has lost 22 kilograms and suffers from low blood pressure. She is not able to walk or talk.

Ms. Iraee who is presently hospitalized in the IRGC Baghyatollah Hospital told her father in a brief visit that she would continue her hunger strike.

Tuesday, April 17, 2018, Ms. Iraee accepted to have serum injection upon the appeals of 1,000 civil and human rights activists and mothers and families of political prisoners and martyrs.

As a writer and a human rights activist, Golrokh Iraee has been sentenced to six years in jail for writing an unpublished book on the cruel punishment of stoning.

She was banished to the notorious Qarchak Prison on January 24, 2018, for resisting interrogations after she called on Iranian protesters on January 9 to endure and pay the price of freedom by continuing their uprising.
