Nasser Fahimi’s case, a high risk prisoner which was opened in 2015 and had been inactive since 2016, has been reopened in May 2020.
According to Nasser Fahimi’s relative, the case was opened against him in 2015 on a complaint filed in Branch 1058 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Tehran, but it was inactive since 2016.
The source added: “The case was opened in 2015 due to the letter criticizing the actions of the Iranian judiciary by the Intelligence and security agents, and was reopened in May 2020.”
Dr. Nasser Fahimi, 42, an Iranian Kurdish political prisoner was arrested in July 2010, by the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS)’s agents and he was immediately transferred to ward 209 of the notorious Evin Prison for interrogation. His case was referred to the 15th branch of the revolutionary court and “Judge” Abolqassem Salavati sentenced him to 10 years in prison under bogus allegations such as “spreading rumors,” “acting against national security,” “disrupting public opinion,” “insulting the supreme leader [Ali Khamenei],” and “threatening judiciary officials.”
In 2014, Dr. Fahimi was transferred from Evin Prison to the Greater Tehran Central Penitentiary and two years later, he was returned to Evin Prison once again.
According to a relative, the reason for the transfer was messages he wrote from prison to the people.
Dr. Nasser Fahimi, had previously written to the Iranian people in a letter about the coronavirus outbreak:
“The people of Iran have been surrounded by coronavirus for 41 years. A virus that has sent millions of innocent people into death. The virus is called the Islamic Republic which has no other cure than to be destroyed.”
