According to reports, a death sentence was issued for political prison Kamran Reza’ifar at his primary trial and was imparted to him.
The human rights center of “No to Prison, No to Execution” quoting reliable sources reported that, the preliminary death sentence for political prisoner Kamran Reza’ifar was issued at Branch 28 of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court, headed by Judge Amoozad and imparted to him. News received say that the sentence was communicated to Kamran Reza’ifar in late September 2021 as a preliminary ruling.
Kamran Reza’ifar, who was born in 1965, is married and is a father. He was arrested by intelligence agents in January 2019 on charges of “having connections to the Mojahedin-e-Khalq (PMOI/MEK)” and was transferred to Wards 240 and 209 of Evin Prison (wards 209 and 240 are under the control of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS). They are consistent of solitary confinement cells and some cell called “the Suits”).
This political prisoner was interrogated in solitary confinement for 77 days and was deprived of the contact and visitation with his family during his interrogation. During this time, he was subjected to a variety of psychological tortures, including the detention of his wife and child, which are examples of human rights abuses.
Kamran Reza’ifar was released on heavy bail after the interrogations were completed. However, in June 2020, he was summoned to be interrogated. He was re-arrested and transferred to Evin Prison on charges of “committing corruption on earth”. At a court hearing on Monday, December 28, 2020, Judge Amoozad had threatened him with death. Finally, in September 2021, the same judge issued his death sentence at his primary trial.
Kamran Reza’ifar is suffering from cataracts in both of his eyes, which he operated one of them in February 2020.
