The 29-year-old political prisoner had previously been transferred from Evin Prison to a solitary confinement cell in Qarchak Prison in March for painting the Kurdish flag and writing slogans in the prison. She was handcuffed and feet cuffed and was severely beaten by prison officials during the transfer.

Earlier, Sakineh Parvaneh, wrote in an open letter about how she was detained: “I, Sakineh Parvaneh was arrested by security forces in the early fall of 12019 under the pretext of visiting my family and was arrested in the Iraqi city of Sulaymaniyah. During my arrest, I was severely beaten, and my toenails were broken. I was transferred to the Iranian-Iraqi border, where the security forces asked me to express my disgust in a manuscript from a number of Kurdish opposition parties and to sign it and write that I had voluntarily surrendered to the Iranian forces. Unrealistic demands that I did not accept, and they faced my resistance. But they wrote a note and forcibly took my fingerprint and signed it. After that, I was detained for a week in a detention center in Marivan and 3 days in Sanandaj, until I was finally transferred to the IRGC Intelligence Detention Center, Ward 2A of Evin Prison. For some time, I was interrogated by Ministry of Intelligence agents in Detention Center 209 and held in solitary confinement. I was detained in solidarity confinement until I was finally transferred to the women’s ward of Evin Prison in March 2010.”
