<<Tehran: Lack of Information Persists Three Months After Arrest of Former Political Prisoner Pakhshan Azizi
Pakhshan Azizi, a journalist, social worker, and former Kurdish political prisoner, has been in custody for 97 days, detained at the Evin Detention Center in Tehran, with little information available about her current condition. According to reports received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, Pakshan Azizi, a graduate in social studies, is held in Ward 209 of Evin Prison, recognized as the detention center of the Intelligence Department. Sources knowledgeable about the matter reveal that, since her recent arrest, Azizi has been denied the right to legal representation, visits, and communication with her family. On August 4, 2023, security forces apprehended Pakhshan Azizi in Kharazi town, Tehran, under the authority of the Ministry of Intelligence of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Hengaw has learned that, along with the former political prisoner, several members of her family were also detained and subsequently released after a few days. It is noteworthy that Azizi was previously arrested on November 16, 2009, during a protest by Kurdish students at Tehran University against the execution of political prisoners in Kurdistan. Following four months in custody, she was released on bail of 100 million tomans on March 9, 2010. Due to continuous pressure and threats from security institutions, Pakhshan Azizi later left Iran. In addition to researching the situation of women in Iraqi Kurdistan and Syrian Kurdistan, she engaged in social work to address and improve their circumstances.>>

<<Tortured Iranian Protester Needs Urgent Liver Transplant
An Iranian protester who endured months of torture while in custody is hospitalized in Turkiye in a <critical> health condition, waiting for a liver transplant, her sister says. Elham Modarresi was arrested a year ago for participating in anti-establishment protests that swept the country following the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, activists say. After months of imprisonment, during which she was subjected to physical and psychological torture, and threats to her family, Modarresi was forced to leave Iran, and is now in Turkiye for medical care. She was recently rushed to a hospital's intensive care unit with <extreme blood loss,> her sister Nahid said in a video posted on the social media platform X. <We have been shouting for three months that Elham is in a critical physical condition,> Nahid said. <She needs an immediate transfer to a hospital that is able to conduct a liver transplant.> <I implore you; it's about her life and death; please do something for her.> A fundraiser launched last month on the online platform GoFundMe to help pay for Modarresi’s medical bills has attracted donations totalling more than $42,000 - nearly half the $90,000 goal. X users can show support by using the hashtag #ElhamModarresi. More than 500 people were killed by security forces and over 20,000 were unlawfully detained during the monthslong protests demanding fundamental changes in Iran. Following biased trials, the judiciary has handed down stiff sentences, including the death penalty, to protesters. Seven of them have been executed so far.>>

<<Iranian Athlete Who Backed Protests Faces Travel Ban, Asset Freeze
A former member of Iran's Wushu national team says he has been banned from leaving the country as part of the punishments imposed by the authorities over his support of nationwide protests. In a video posted on Instagram on November 9, martial art athlete Farshid Asadian says he is grappling with severe livelihood challenges after his assets were confiscated and his bank accounts were frozen. Asadian decided to depart the national team in late September 2022 following the eruption of the anti-establishment protests. In his farewell message, he criticized the brutal state crackdown on the protest movement in which more than 500 people were killed and over 20,000 were unlawfully detained. Following biased trials, the judiciary has handed down stiff sentences, including the death penalty, to protesters. Seven of them have been executed so far. In mid-October, Asadian said security agencies were trying to force him to return to the national team. Over the past few months, the International Olympic Committee has called on the Iranian government to lift pressures on athletes. Despite that, the National Olympic Committee, in conjunction with the Ministry of Sports and other government bodies, continues to pressure Iranian athletes on various grounds.>>

<<Crackdown on Hijab Violators: Image-Less Posters Appear on Iranian Cinemas
The movie Ameh Pasand (Popular) has been released in Iranian cinemas, with the white promotional posters featuring only the film's title and the names of the actors. This is due to a prohibition by the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance on using images of two actresses featured in the movie, Baran Kosari and Fatemeh Motamed-Arya, who were prosecuted this year after appearing in public without the mandatory headscarf. Ameh Pasand, directed by Soheil Beiraghi, was produced in 2018, but its release in Iran had been pending for four years until it finally obtained screening permission. The film centers around a woman who goes against societal norms and is subjected to society's pressures for that. It addresses the many challenges women face in Iranian society, including in finding housing and employment, or in obtaining a business license. The Islamic Republic mandates that all women in Iran cover their hair with a headscarf and wear loose-fitting trousers under their coats, but a growing number of them, including celebrities, have appeared in public without hijab since the eruption of nationwide protests last year. Some of these defiant women were arrested, were summoned by the authorities, and faced legal proceedings. Hundreds of small businesses and shopping malls have been shut down under the accusation of failing to enforce hijab rules on their customers.>>

<<Tortured Iranian Rapper Denied Surgical Procedure in Jail
Toomaj Salehi, a popular Iranian rapper incarcerated for supporting anti-establishment protests, continues to be denied medical treatment for injuries he sustained while in custody, his lawyer says. Salehi was violently arrested on November 30 amid nationwide demonstrations sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while she was in police custody. The artist, whose fingers and leg were broken under torture, was sentenced to six years and three months in prison after spending more than eight months in solitary confinement. He is being held in Tehran's Evin prison. Salehi's legal representative, Amir Raisian, told local media on November 8 that the surgical procedure needed to treat his leg <has been repeatedly postponed until now.> <The reasons for these delays have varied,> the lawyer said. <But in the past one or two months, after other physicians examined Toomaj Salehi's medical records, the need for surgery was definitively confirmed. However, an agreement on this matter has yet to be reached.>
Raisian said Salehi had also been denied communication with him and his family members, and that his complaint against prison and judicial authorities has not been adequately addressed. In the runup to his arrest, Salehi released songs that criticized the government and supported the widespread protests demanding more freedoms and women's rights, and posted pictures and videos of himself during demonstrations. His arrest and conviction have been widely criticized both domestically and internationally.>>

<<Kermanshah: The fate of two young citizens stays in abeyance after being arrested
Nima Almasi, from Sarpol Zahab, and Amir Ahmadi, from the Gahvareh city of Kermanshah province (Kermashan), were arrested by the Iranian security forces nearly forty days ago, and their fate remains unknown. According to the report received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, about 40 days ago Nima Almasi, 18 years old, and Amir Ahmadi, 22 years old, were taken to one of the detention centers of this security organization in Kermanshah after being arrested by the Iranian Intelligence Department. According to an informed source, Nima Almasi and Amir Ahmadi had only one short phone call during this period, and there is no precise information about the location and conditions of their detention, which has caused serious concern to their families. These two young men, who previously had a history of political activity in the Kurdistan region as supporters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran, were immediately arrested after returning with prior notice from the Iranian government institutions. Nima Almasi and Amir Ahmadi were arrested in early October 2023, after returning to Iran, and were transferred to one of the detention centers of the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence in Kermanshah.>>

<<Kurdish Political Prisoner Soheila Mohammadi Denied Leave Despite Securing Bail
In the central prison of Urmia, Soheila Mohammadi, a Kurdish political prisoner, continues to be denied the right to temporary leave, despite having posted bail. This denial is a result of obstruction by the prison authorities. Over the past three years, Mohammadi has resorted to hunger strikes multiple times as a form of protest. According to a report received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, Soheila Mohammadi, a female political prisoner hailing from Selmas, currently confined in the women’s ward of Urmia's Central Prison, deposited a substantial bail of two billion and five hundred million nearly three months ago to secure temporary release. Regrettably, her request has been persistently denied by the prison authorities. Soheila Mohammadi commenced a hunger strike from Saturday, August 5, until Tuesday, August 8, 2023. Throughout this period, she encountered pressure and threats from the Intelligence Department and officials of Urmia Central Prison, who, in exchange for ensuring her leave, urged her to cease the strike These circumstances have placed Soheila Mohammadi in a worrisome state, both mentally and physically. Her three-year separation from her child, coupled with the pressures imposed by government institutions during her periods of interrogation and detention, have taken a toll on her well-being, according to reliable sources. Despite serving three years of her five-year prison sentence, Mohammadi continues to be denied her rightful opportunity for temporary leave. Soheila Mohammadi, a mother of one child, tragically resorted to self-harm in March 2022 by stabbing herself in the chest due to the pressure imposed by government security institutions and their persistent obstruction of her temporary leave and amnesty. Her fellow inmates in the prison intervened and rescued her. In 2019, she was apprehended in Salmas city by IRGC Intelligence forces, and after enduring several months of interrogation, she was transferred to the female ward of Urmia Central Prison. Subsequently, Soheila Mohammadi was sentenced to five years in prison by the 1st branch of the Revolutionary Court of Urmia on charges of being a member of the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK). Since then, she has been detained in the female ward of Urmia Central Prison, without the opportunity for temporary leave or conditional release.>>

<<Family Lawyer’s Take on Probe Into Iranian Teen's Death During Protest
After a year of efforts by the family of Abolfazl Adinezadeh, a 16-year-old Iranian boy shot dead during nationwide protests last year, to seek justice, a military prosecutor closed the investigation into his death without coming to a conclusion. In a statement, Gholamhassan Alvandi, the prosecutor at Branch 1 of the Khorasan Razavi Military Prosecutor's Office announced the closure of the case due to <insufficient concrete evidence to support the claim that military and law enforcement personnel used shotguns.> Khosro Alikordi, the lawyer representing Abolfazl's family, tells IranWire that, despite the presence of approximately 20 CCTVs around the site where Adinezadeh was killed and the questioning of the woman who transported the teenager to a hospital using footage from these surveillance cameras, not a single video has been included in the case file. He insists that the announcement by the prosecutor handling the case will not deter the pursuit of justice for Abolfazl. <We cannot predict the outcome, but I will formally submit our detailed protest to the military prosecutor's office within the next two or three days to ensure that our concerns are addressed,> the lawyer says.
Abolfazl Adinezadeh was outside Ferdowsi University in the northeastern city of Mashhad, where a protest gathering was taking place, when he was hit by over 70 pellets fired by security forces. He lost his life shortly after being transported to Imam Reza Hospital, with his death certificate citing shotgun wounds to his kidney and liver as the cause for his demise. His family has since faced harassment and multiple arrests by security agencies.
The Revolutionary and Public Prosecutor's Office in Mashhad has charged his sister and his father, Marzieh and Ali Adinezadeh, of <propaganda against the system.> The two received a notice earlier this week requesting them to present their <final defense.> Despite the pressure, the Adinezadeh family said in a statement issued through their lawyer on November 6: <We are completely sure and aware that the killer of Abolfazl is Mashhad's special unit.> Khosrow Alikordi, their legal representative, tells IranWire he had requested access to footage of the vicinity of the crime scene. <Unfortunately, none of these cameras were retrieved, and we do not possess any video evidence,> the lawyer stated. <With so many cameras present, there isn't a single reel of film in the file. This is a troubling aspect of the case.> According to him, the female medical student who transported Abolfazl in a car to Imam Reza Hospital was questioned by security forces a few days after the incident. <How did they locate this lady? They likely used security cameras because this lady arrived, helped Abolfazl, and then returned to her home....the driver has also been identified,> Alikordi says. Alikordi says the woman testified that the individuals who shot Abolfazl were <dressed in black clothing,> like riot unit members.
Alikordi has requested the names of the riot police personnel stationed around the scene of the killing. The special unit provided a list of 20 to 30 individuals, but statements were obtained from only four or five of them, he says. These individuals stated they had not shot the pellets that struck Abolfazl and claimed they had fired in the air. Also, the investigator has not ordered a comprehensive forensic investigation, Alikordi says. The lawyer further says that a weapon expert has concluded that Abolfazl was killed by a type of pellet exclusively used by the anti-riot police. He points out that the prosecutor of Branch 211 of the Mashhad Revolutionary and General Prosecutor's Office had stated that Abolfazl was shot and killed by anti-riot police forces. This finding led to the transfer of the case to Branch 1 of the Khorasan Razavi Military Prosecutor's Office. In its announcement, the prosecutor's office suggested the plaintiffs <pursue compensation from the National Treasury and through legal channels.> <The family, with unwavering confidence, asserts that their child was subjected to violence by the riot police, and they are not willing to accept any compensation from the National Treasury under any circumstances,> Alikordi says.>>

<<Seventeen Baha'is Arrested in Iran and Two Elderly Women Harassed by Agents
Security agents in Iran conducted a wave of raids on the homes of Baha'is in the cities of Hamadan and Mehrshahr, arresting at least 17 individuals and seizing personal belongings, including electronic devices, religious texts, photographs, and cash. Eyewitnesses described the raids as <armed> and <violent,> with security forces entering homes without warrants and ransacking them. Also on Tuesday, security agents conducted raids on the homes of three Baha'i families in Hamadan. They were subsequently summoned for questioning. According to information from reliable sources, security agents arrived at the residence of an 80-year-old woman named Poran Khandel and her son. Additionally, they went to the house of Akhtar Naeemi, an 85-year-old woman. During these house searches, the individuals were issued summons for questioning. Khandel and Naeemi have faced continuous pressure from government security forces, despite their advanced age and health issues. In 1981, the Islamic Republic executed the husbands of these two women, Hossein Khandel and Firooz Naeemi, due to their Baha'i beliefs. Security agents also searched the house of Mehran Khandel and his wife, Jinoos Shadabi, who are the son and daughter-in-law of Poran Khandel, in Hamadan. Personal belongings were confiscated during this search. In Hamadan, at least eight Baha'is were arrested. The arrested individuals are Atefeh Zahedi, Masoud Azarnoush, Zarin Ahadzadeh, Naeem Aghdasi, Neda Mohebi, Jinous Shadabi, Jaleh Rezaei, Farideh Ayoubi and Nora Ayoubi, according to Radio Farda. Sources reported that security forces seized personal belongings from these individuals. At least nine Baha'is were also arrested in Mehrshahr, near Tehran on Tuesday night. The arrested individuals are Shervin Shabrukh, Babak Zainli, Sohba Taif, Nika Ismailpour, Iman Ehsani, Iren Rahmani, Fawad Taifi, as well as Reza and Fahimeh Yazdi. There is no information available regarding the reasons for their arrests or their current whereabouts. The Iranian government has intensified its crackdown on members of the Baha'i faith, which is not recognized by the Islamic Republic and faces systematic persecution, imprisoning dozens of them on spurious charges over the past few months.>>

Three instances of femicide in Mashhad, Shiraz, and Zabol
The body of a young woman was found in Bahar village of Mashhad after two weeks. Hadis Eslami, 26, was a camerawoman from Mashhad who shot films for wedding ceremonies. Her mother and husband had reported her missing since October 21, 2023. The body of Hadis Eslami was found near her husband's garden on Friday evening, November 3, 2023, according to the state-run media and newspapers, including the official IRNA news agency. Police investigations led to the arrest of her husband Hadis's husband had shot her in the head.
Three instances of femicide in Mashhad, Shiraz, and Zabol. In another horrific incident, a man murdered his wife and daughter in Shiraz, the capital of the southern Fars Province.The state-run news agency ILNA reported on Tuesday, November 7, that a 46-year-old man had used a cold weapon to kill his wife, 36, and his daughter, 8 years old. The man was arrested in the vicinity of the place of the incident and handed over to the judiciary. In yet another incident in Zabol, in the southeastern Sistan and Baluchestan province, a man shot his 16-year-old wife on the street. She was shot in the side. Although she was taken to a hospital immediately, she lost her life due to the severity of the wounds. Femicide is one of the most vicious forms of violence against women, which has become all too common under the mullahs' misogynistic laws in Iran. The Iranian regime's failure to criminalize domestic violence and violence against women has led to the spread of femicide, honor killings, and murder of innocent children by their fathers, husbands, and other male relatives. The NCRI Women's Committee appeals to the UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women to investigate these cases and hold the regime accountable for its failure to protect defenseless women.>>
