On May 5th, 2018, the court hearing for Raheleh Rahemipour case will be held at the Islamic Revolutionary Court Branch 28
.According to the Committee for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners, the hearing on the charges against Raheleh Rahemipour will be held at the Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran on Saturday morning, May 5th, 2018. “Propaganda against the regime, participation in protests, complaints to the United Nations and interviews with the media “are the charges against Raheleh Rahemipour.
Earlier, Raheleh Rahemipour due to her persuading the fate of her executed brother’s daughter, was interrogated and a case was filed against her.
Raheleh Rahemipour has been trying for many years to clarify the truth about the disappearance of his brother and nephew, who were imprisoned in the eighties.
Her niece, Gulrou, was born in the prison in 1984 after her parents were detained. When she was 15 days old, she was separated from her mother for medical care. Officials later said she had died, but did not show the death certificate or her burial grounds. The Iranian judiciary also reported on the execution of Hussein, the brother of Mrs. Rahemipour, but did not specify his burial place.
In August 1983, Security Guards arrested Hossein Rahemipour Raheleh ‘s brother, along with his wife, who was recently pregnant, at their own house in Tehran.
On September 11th, 2017, Raheleh Rahemipour was arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence at her home. They entered her house early evening and searched the house. They took her along with her computer, cell phone, and some personal documents. After about two weeks of interrogation in Section 209, Evin prison, she was released on bail.
After months of persecution of the family and repeated interrogations at the Revolutionary Court, in January 2017, Salavati, Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court Judge, denied the existence of this infant, and called it the imagination of Raheleh Rahemipour. He condemned Raheleh Rahemipour to a one-year prison sentence for conducting a propaganda campaign against the regime.
“Moghdelna Maghrebi, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa division at Amnesty International, said earlier in connection with Raheleh Rahemipour:” Mrs. Rahemipour suffers from the grief of her dear ones’ disappearances and her own unfair imprisonment sentence. Her arrest is more evidence of the will of the government to intimidate her and force her to remain silent. “
The harassment of Raheleh Rahemipour by security agencies is against “International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance”, which states to protect the plaintiffs, witnesses and relatives of the disappeared person from any mistreatment or intimidation as a consequence of a complaint or martyrdom.
