Human Rights in Iran – Tuesday, September 20, 2022 – Zeynab Hamrang Seyed-Begloo, a political prisoner imprisoned in Evin Prison, is denied the basic rights of a prisoner to be dispatched on leave and is serving her prison sentence.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, Zeynab Hamrang Seyed-Begloo, born in 1972, from Parsabad, Moghan, a retired cultural and political prisoner imprisoned in Evin Prison, is denied the basic rights of a prisoner to be dispatched on leave despite being able to secure bail. This political prisoner is serving a five-year prison sentence.

In an interview with the reporter of Human Rights in Iran, an informed source said:”Zeinab Hamrang, suffers from hypertension fluctuations, kidney failure and pterygium, and the condition of treatment at the Evin Prison clinic is not suitable, and despite her ability to deposit bail, due to opposition from judicial authorities and security bailiffs in her case, the request to send this political prisoner on leave has been rejected.”

Zeynab Hamrang was arrested by security forces on September 5, 2020, while traveling to Khoy, West Azerbaijan Province, and transferred to Evin Prison in Tehran to endure her five-year imprisonment.

The retired cultural citizen was sentenced by the Revolutionary Court branch of Tehran to one year imprisonment on charges of “propaganda against the state” and five years for charges “assembly and collusion with the intent to disrupt the security of the country”. This sentence was confirmed after Zeynab Hamrang’s case was referred to Branch 36 of the Appeals Court of Tehran Province, and by applying Article 134 of the Islamic Penal Code, the implementation of five years of imprisonment was finalized for her.

Zeiynab Hamrang Seyed-Begloo was arrested on January 12, 2020, after security forces raided her private home, searched her home and confiscated some of her personal belongings. After being transferred to the interrogation branch of the Evin Prison Prosecutor’s Office and being arraigned, she was later released on bail of 600 million Tomans.

Preventing prisoners from being sent on medical leave and not sending them to specialized medical facilities is a violation of Article 5 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 7 of the International Covenant on Civil, Political and Social Rights and a form of torture.

Suppression of citizens and filing accusations against them based on the scenario of security agencies violates Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on December 16, 1966.

In addition, the right to a fair trial by an impartial judge, interrogator, and investigator is among the rights highlighted in Article 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The impossibility of the accused to have access to a lawyer, as well as denying the person access to other necessities in a judicial process, violates Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on December 16, 1966.

In Article 5 of the Criminal Procedure Law, it is emphasized on informing the accused as soon as possible about the alleged charges and providing the right of access to a lawyer and other defense rights mentioned in the law.
