Nasrin Sotoudeh Was Transferred To Qarchak To Serve 12 Years Sentence!

Nasrin Sotoudeh was told that she would be taken to the hospital, but she was taken to Qarchak prison.

Apart from Nasrin Sotoudeh, other female activists Monira Arabshahi, Yasmin Ariani, and Samaneh Norouzmoradi, Elham Barmaki, a dual nationality prisoner, were transferred from Evin to Qarchak on October 5, without any particular reason. Earlier, Kylie Moore-Gilbert, an Iranian-Australian prisoner, was also sent to Qarchak Prison. Meanwhile, Qarchak prison in Varamin lacks the minimum standard, and there is no safe edible water there. It has raised concerns about the transfer of these prisoners.

Shirin Ebadi, a lawyer, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, said the primary reason for transfer is evacuating Evin for future mass arrests. According to this lawyer, envisaging future riots in Tehran and keeping Evin empty are the real reasons for these transfers. “Evin is only for the arrest phase until the verdict is issued. Having been issued with the verdict, the prisoners will be transferred to other prisons”, said Shirin Ebadi.
