HRANA News Agency - Imprisoned blogger and medical student, Rojin Mohammadi, has been locked up in Ward 2A of Evin Prison under appalling conditions. This ward is under the control of Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC).
According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Rojin Mohammadi contacted her family briefly by phone and informed them of her nervous convulsions and migraine headaches in prison. Rojin Mohammadi’s current condition is the direct result of her incarceration and pressures exerted by the interrogators in order to force her to confess and accept charges filed against her.
Iranian authorities have charged Rojin Mohammadi with the crimes of propaganda against the regime and inciting public opinion by the means of human rights activism. Meanwhile, intelligence agents have been pressuring Rojin Mohammadi’s family not to broadcast the news of her condition. Rojin Mohammadi’s brother was also summoned to Shahid Moghadasi Court in Evin Prison and threatened.
Rojin Mohammadi was initially arrested on November 14, 2011 upon her arrival at Imam Khomeini Airport but and subsequently released after posting bail. She was finally arrested again on November 23, 2011 and locked up behind bars in Evin Prison.
