Political Prisoner Held in Quarantine Despite Poor Health Conditions

Fatemeh Muthanna’s physical condition is reported to be very poor and she suffers from severe digestive problems such as diarrhea and vomiting, so that she cannot eat.

Instead of being transferred to the prison medical center, this political prisoner has received serum quarantine several times so far.

Fatemeh Muthanna was transferred to Taleghani Hospital in Tehran on August 19, 2020, while being unconscious. She was handcuffed to her bed in the hospital.

On the order of Amin Vaziri, the special prosecutor of political prisoners, she was barred from visiting her relatives.

Fatemeh Muthanna also had symptoms of fever and chills before being transferred to the hospital, and it is possible that she has been infected with the coronavirus.

She was returned to Evin Prison on August 26, 2020, on the orders of Amin Vaziri, without undergoing treatment.

When Iman Sadeghi, Ms. Mosanna’s son, went to her hospital to deliver some items for use in the hospital, he found out that his mother had been taken to prison against the doctor’s advice.

Iman Sadeghi then went to the prosecutor’s office to follow up on the matter, where Vaziri told him that your mother should recover in the quarantine ward.

Following Sadeghi’s objection to the issue, on the order of Vaziri, the agents expelled him from the prosecutor’s office.

Ms. Mosanna suffers from intestinal colitis and severe nervous migraine.

Since 2015, Hassan Sadeghi and his wife Fatemeh Mosanna have been serving 15-year prison sentences after being arrested in January 2013 for organizing a mourning ceremony for Hassan Sadeghi’s father Gholamhossein Sadeghi, a member of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

The government has confiscated all of the couple’s properties, including what Hassan Sadeghi had inherited from his father.

Hassan Sadeghi served another six years in prison back in the 1980s from the ages of 15 to 21 for engaging in political activities related to the PMOI.

During that time, Hassan Sadeghi’s wife Fatemeh Mosanna and her mother Ferdows Mahboubi served two and four years in prison respectively.

Ms. Mosanna’s brothers, Ali, Mostafa and Morteza Mosanna were executed in 1980s, all for the charge of “collaboration with the PMOI.

Thousands of political prisoners and members of the PMOI were executed without trial during the 1980s.

They were mostly young men and women, some just teenagers, imprisoned because of their political opinions and non-violent political activities.
