According to an informed source, The authorities prevent Ghadriyeh Ghaderi, who has been detained in Yasouj Prison in Youth detention centre from being released. Yesterday, 16 May, despite of a letter from the Islamic Revolutionary Court of the Judiciary of Orumiyeh, the head of the Yasouj prison has denied her release on the pretext of security.

The source continued Ghaderi’s family have been told by Dadkhah in Orumiyeh court that the letter of release of Ghaderi has been sent to the court and Yasouj prison and her release in May 17, is permitted. The supervisor judge of Yasuj Prison agreed the release of this political prisoner, but the head of prison rejected her release on the pretext of security and said her freedom will have responsibility for prison. For this reason he has decided to transfer Ghaderi to Orumiyeh Central police headquarters where they can decide the movement right of her (Verdict to leave the country) by the court during the coming days.

Earlier, According to Human Rights Network Kurdistan (KHRN) had been released a news about uncertainty on the release of the political prisoners.

The source also told (KHRN) that Saleh Nikbakht, a Kurdish well known lawyer has taken Ghaderi’s case to track the status of her freedom and the movement right of her (Verdict to leave the country), in the last few weeks. The lawyer stated that the warrant of leaving the country by the court is illegal and he will track the status of this Iranian- Turkish prisoner in Orumiyeh court in the coming days.

Ghadriyeh Ghaderi, Kurdish prisoner (Turkish-Iranian citizen) was arrested in May 2011 in the city of Orumiyeh and she was in custody of the intelligence office of Orumiyeh for three months before she was transferred to the Orumiyeh central prison. The Iranian Revolutionary Court then sentenced her to 10 years in prison in cooperation with Turkey’s Kurdish rebel group, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

The Court of Appeal lowered her sentence to seven years in exile in Yasouj prison. She was transferred to the Yasouj central prison on 6 July 2013, and she has since been jailed in the women’s section where female prisoners sentenced for ordinary crimes are also detained. She is suffering from ear infection, severe headache and numbness of one of her hands. She was twice transferred to a hospital outside the prison for medical treatment.

In another case the General Court of the city of Orumiyeh, she charged on “leave the country illegally” for one year imprisonment. The court charged her without checking her identification papers. In spite of the fact all her family was accepted in Orumiyeh as citizens the court ignored the document and charged her for attempting to leave the country illegally.

Ghadery has heard about her father’s death in prison, in 2016 and she had enclosed her father’s death certificate to her application, but the Intelligence Office and the Attorney General of Orumiyeh did not accept to grant Ghadery’s request for temporary leave.

While this Kurdish prisoner suffers from an illness that causes numbness and pain in her left ear with the confirmation of health care centre of the prison of Yasouj, she was only allowed 15 days leave in August 2015, but because of lack of time she was not able to get enough treatment in hospitals outside of the prison.”
