chronology of Iran's nuclear deal& latest news& articles



I tried to compile important events and articles since July 18, 2015 about nuclear agreement 
Following is the latest articles i suggest to read:

IAEA Inspectors Can No Longer Verify that Iran is in Compliance with the 2015 Nuclear Deal
Mosaic Mag. November 16, 2017 - On Monday the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its eighth quarterly report on the Islamic Republic’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the 2015 nuclear agreement is formally known. Although the document does not mention any evidence of violation of the deal’s terms, write David Albright and Andrea Sticker, it is “so sparse in detail that it is impossible to conclude that Iran is fully complying.” The IAEA, they explain, has simply not been able to conduct the inspections necessary for verification:

Tehran accuses U.S. of 18 violations of nuclear agreement
Washington Free Beacon, October 25, 2017 - Iran has taken steps in recent days to file what it claims are 18 instances in which America violated the landmark nuclear agreement, a move that could set the stage for Tehran to abandon the deal and lay blame on the Trump administration, according to regional reports and sources familiar with the matter.
On the heels of an effort by the Trump administration to tighten the nuclear accord while still upholding U.S. commitments under it, the Iranian Foreign Ministry has submitted to European Union leaders a plethora of information recounting what it claims are 18 separate violations of the deal by the United States, according to Iran's state-controlled media.

Draft Legislation Regarding Iran Nuclear Deal
Republican Senators Bob Corker and Tom Cotton have drafted some legislation with regards to the Iran nuclear deal and Trump’s recent decertification of it. The legislation would impose tough terms on the nuclear deal and would ensure that sanctions are restored if Iran carries out any testing on a ballistic missile that has the capability of carrying a warhead. It would also ensure that sanctions are reimposed if the Islamic Republic refuses nuclear inspectors access to any sites in the country.

US Strategy on Iran Regime
United States President Donald Trump has made it very clear that he is not a fan of the Iran nuclear deal. He has been criticizing it since before he even took office. At the recent United Nations General Assembly, he described it as an “embarrassment” to the United States and very one-sided.
His predecessor, President Barack Obama has been criticized for his leniency on Iran. He made numerous concessions to Iran during the nuclear agreement negotiations and he had a policy of appeasement that basically let Iran get away with murder. Literally.

FOI Requests Over Iran Deal and the Role of IRGC
 A Conservative organisation in the US has sent out Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests to four key agencies to uncover the truth about the 2015 nuclear deal.
In this new request, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), is asking the State Department, the Department of the Treasury, the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to provide all of the information surrounding Iran Air’s use of civilian aircraft for military and terrorist activities of Iran regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
In their statement, the ACLJ said: “What they knew matters because, in the Iran Deal, they agreed to let Boeing and other plane manufacturers sell aeroplanes to Iranian airliners like Iran Air.”
FOI Requests Over Iran Deal and the Role of IRGC
Middle East Will Never Be Peaceful If Iran Regime Is Allowed to Continue as It Is
Even though the Iran nuclear deal has been in place since 2015, Iran remains one of the most serious threats to the security in the Middle East. For as long as the Iranian regime is in power, there will never be peace in the Middle East.
Many said that the nuclear deal would tame the Iranian regime’s behaviour but it seemed to have the opposite effect. Iran became more and more emboldened and it knew that the Obama administration - that bent over backwards to get Iran’s signature – would turn a blind eye and remain silent to all of the acts of belligerence it was carrying out.
Middle East Will Never Be Peaceful If Iran Regime Is Allowed to Continue as It Is
Why Iran's Nuclear Deal Backfired
When President Barack Obama struck a deal with the Iranian Regime in 2015, it was always about something more than just the nuclear programme. It was about reshaping US policy in the Middle East.
He wanted to work with the Iranian Regime, even if that meant risking traditional US alliances in the Middle East, which were, if nothing else, maintaining stability in the region.
Nikki Haley: Iran Regime Hides Behind Its Assertion of Technical Compliance With the Nuclear Deal
Nikki Haley: Iran Regime Hides Behind Its Assertion of Technical Compliance With the Nuclear Deal
"As a council, we've adopted a dangerously shortsighted approach," Haley, the top American diplomat at the U.N., said during a Wednesday meeting. "Iran must be judged in totality of its aggressive, destabilizing, and unlawful behavior. To do otherwise would be foolish." ‘Washington Examiner’ reported on Wednesday October 18. An excerpt of the report is as follows:
Haley remonstrated with the other members of the international body, saying they have ignored Iran's repeated violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions. The meeting was supposed to be devoted to the revival Israeli-Palestinian peace process, but Haley used it as an early opportunity to advance President Trump's new strategy on Iran

THE HILL:Iran is violating the deal
Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, it is violating its letter. The prologue to the deal explicitly states: “Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.” This reaffirmation has no sunset provision: it is supposed to be forever.
Yet the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recently stated that it could not verify that Iran was “fully implementing the agreement” by not engaging in activities that would allow it to make a nuclear explosive device. Yukiya Amano of the IAEA told Reuters that when it comes to inspections, which are stipulated in Section T of the agreement, “our tools are limited.” Amano continued to say: “In other sections, for example, Iran has committed to submit declarations, place their activities under safeguards or ensure access by us. But in Section T, I don’t see any (such commitment).”

THE HILL:Iran is violating the deal
Trump's Iranian nuclear deal speech ricochets across the Middle East
BY RAYMOND TANTER AND ED STAFFORD
President Trump’s Iran strategy speech of Oct. 13 rattled Tehran and excited a large portion of the Iranian population, including the Iranian opposition. Trump’s speech, while going over a long list of Tehran’s nefarious activities, referred to the people of Iran as the main victims of the Iranian regime. He also refrained from certifying that Iran complied with the deal but did not withdraw from the political commitment the major powers and Tehran made to abide by the accord for 10 years from Aug. 2015.
After punting the decision to Congress for 60 days, research conducted for this post suggests Trump should gain congressional support to withdraw from the deal, renegotiate a better accord, and press our allies to adopt a strategy against Iran of renewal of sanctions until the Iranian regime changes its unacceptable behavior.

Trump Decertified The Iran Nuclear Deal. Now What?
After describing it as the “worst deal ever” and threatening to scrap the entire accord, U.S. President Donald Trump has decertified the Iran nuclear deal, describing it as against U.S. national security interests, and outlined significant measures targeting the regime in its entirety. Trump took a major step in ordering the Treasury Department to fully sanction Iran’s notorious Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), describing the entity as Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's "corrupt terror personal terror force and militia."
This is a major U.S. policy shift vis-a-vis Iran dating back to the early 1950s since Eisenhower turned against the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh.
The U.S. Treasury Department followed suit by designating the IRGC "pursuant to the global terrorism Executive Order (E.O.) 13224 and consistent with the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act." Such a move against the Guards will have major implications in Iran and the region.

Iran Regime's Way of Deceiving the West
- Earlier this week, the Atlantic published an article by the Foreign Minister of Iran Javad Zarif. As per most comments from the Iranian regime, the piece is full of lies and deceptions. The truth and reality is twisted. However, one thing was very clear from the article – Iran’s goal is to become a regional power and it is doing so by making the West believe that it is not happening.
Speaking about the accuracy of the country’s missiles, Zarif said that Iran is trying to avoid “civilian or non-combatant deaths”, but we know that it is to intensify the threat and to improve its capabilities of causing further destruction in the Middle East

Iran's secret sites linked to nuclear weapons development revealed
EXCLUSIVE –  President Donald Trump is expected this week to “decertify” the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known simply as the Iran deal, declaring that the agreement reached in 2015 by the U.S. and five other international powers is not in America’s national interest. The matter will then be tossed back to Congress, which will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose hefty pre-2015 sanctions.
While the President’s likely move has generated wide condemnation from foreign policy leaders — who reiterate that the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has maintained Iran is in compliance — a new 52-page investigative report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), entitled: “Iran’s Nuclear Core: Uninspected Military Sites,” obtained exclusively by Fox News and slated for release Wednesday, asserts that the country’s nuclear weapons program has far from halted.
“It has been known for years that Iran has two nuclear programs — one is civilian and the other, the military, has the goal of giving Iran its first nuclear bomb,” Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the Washington office of the NCRI, also referred to as the Iranian Resistance, and considered the primary opposition coalition to the clerical administration of Iran, told Fox News. “The civilian sector of the nuclear program has systematically provided a plausible logistical cover for the military sector, and acts as a conduit for it. The military aspect of the program has been and remains at the heart of Iran’s nuclear activities.”

Trump's decertification of the nuclear deal could be what Iran's rulers fear most

Trump's decertification of the nuclear deal could be what Iran's rulers fear most
by Amir Basiri | Oct 6, 2017,
The nuclear deal should be recognized for what it is: a deal that limits, but does not block, Iran's path to nuclear weapons. Likewise, the Iranian regime should be recognized for what it is: a rogue regime that poses a multitude of threats to international peace and security, all of which have to be addressed. Nuclear weapon development is only one of them.
Varying sources have confirmed that President Trump will decertify the Iran nuclear deal come an Oct. 15 deadline. This will mean that the president does not see the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the deal is formally known, as vital to the national security interests of the U.S. It will then be up to Congress to decide whether to scrap the deal and reimpose sanctions on the Iranian regime or to preserve it and take other necessary measures to address its flaws.
The question now is what this move means for Iranian regime, and how its leaders will react? Iranian officials have threatened to walk away from the deal and the enrichment of uranium on several reprises in the past months as Trump intensified the tough talk against the accord's failures and Tehran's unlawful ventures.

Time running out for Iran's nuclear deal By Struan Stevenson
Sept. 29, 2017- Time running out for Iran's nuclear deal
By Struan Stevenson
With only days to go before U.S. President Donald Trump must decide if he will grant the Iranian regime compliance with the nuclear deal on Oct. 15, the sands of time are rapidly running out for Tehran's rulers.
Trump told a meeting of the United Nations in September that the deal was "an embarrassment" to the United States. If Trump refuses to certify Iran's compliance with the deal, which seems highly likely, Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to reapply the crippling sanctions lifted by former President Barack Obama after the deal was signed.
There is increasing speculation that the Iranian regime is financing North Korea's nuclear program, despite worldwide condemnation and the imposition of heavy sanctions against Kim Jong Un's rogue state even by China. A former U.S. senior diplomat has said that when Iran wants nuclear weapons it simply has to write a check and hand it to the North Koreans.
U.S. National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster said in September, "The President has already declared that the Iranian regime is not living up to its obligation. They are certainly not living up to the spirit of this agreement. Instead of contributing to regional peace and security, as the deal calls for, Iran is using proxy forces and a terrorist network to foment violence and victimize innocents across the greater Middle East. The Iranian regime is seeding these networks with increasingly destructive weapons as they try to establish a bridge from Iran to Lebanon and Syria."
Obama's policy of appeasement toward Iran was a huge mistake. The nuclear deal was totally one-sided, giving endless concessions to the Iranian regime. Its leniency made it easy for the mullahs continually to run a cart and horses through the terms of the agreement with virtual impunity. This in turn encouraged the North Koreans to accelerate their own nuclear weapons' program, encouraged by the apparent weakness of the West. There is now a growing awareness that the best way of dealing with North Korea is by taking tough action against Iran.

Heshmat Alavi 
Discussions are continuing as we speak over the fate of the highly controversial Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Advocates and opponents are going the limits to present their case prior to the October 15th deadline when US President Donald Trump is due to determine the status of Iran’s compliance with the accord.
While this is a very important discussion, what unfortunately goes neglected is the status of the Iranian people who should be the first beneficiaries of such an accord that led to many sanctions being lifted from the Iranian regime.

WORLD MUST STOP LETTING IRAN REGIME GET AWAY WITH NUCLEAR INSPECTION OBSTRUCTION Alejo Vidal-Quadras

28 September 2017-WORLD MUST STOP LETTING IRAN REGIME GET AWAY WITH NUCLEAR INSPECTION OBSTRUCTION
Alejo Vidal-Quadras, a Spanish professor of atomic and nuclear physics, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Examiner in which he explained that Iran has a long history in obstructing investigations into its nuclear programme and this has not changed in the two years since the nuclear deal was signed.
Vidal-Quadras, who is also president of the Brussels-based International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) which seeks to gain justice for the victims of the 1988 Iranian massacre, wrote: “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action effectively skirted this issue by making it theoretically possible for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ask for and receive access to military sites, but only following a month-long process during which the Islamic Republic could work to erase evidence of past activities.”
This is especially troubling when you consider that the IAEA’s reports are the chief reason why many countries besides the US believe that Iran is in compliance with the deal. The problem is, how can you be in compliance with anything if you are always allowed to delay investigations until you’ve hidden the evidence?

Appeasing Iran failed-How to move on?
By: Shahriar Kia
Riyadh Daily, September 28, 2017 - The Iran nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was eventually signed in 2015 after a series of initially covert, and thus overt talks amongst various parties.
While the deal was boasted of enjoying a long slate of strengths, its imperfections were cloaked by JCPOA advocates – led by senior Obama administration officials – and allowed the broader challenges posed by Iran to go unanswered.
All, from left to right, liberal to conservative, Democrat, and Republican, must come to realize that the rendered cons of the Iran nuclear deal completely overshadow the very few pros.

who is children's rights defender,Saeed Shirzad?why he is on hunger strike?


Saeed Shirzad is a children's rights defender in Iran. He has worked with children’s rights NGOs including the Association in Support of Children’s Rights, Children’s Home of Shoosh and Society in Defence of Street Children, and has traveled throughout Iran and internationally to provide humanitarian assistance to children and advocate for their rights. Saeed is known in particular for his work in defence of street children, which includes organisation training, education, and health services for homeless, disadvantaged, and refugee children in collaboration with UNICEF. He has helped recruit lawyers to support refugee and asylum seeking families to obtain legal documentation, and identified and provided direct support to more than 100 families working in sweatshops.
Saeed Shirzad, an ethnic Kurd and children’s rights activist was arrested in the earthquake-stricken town of Varzaghan in East Azerbaijan province by security agents from the town of Ahar. Agents purportedly arrested Shirzad as he administered aid to earthquake victims in the afternoon of Tuesday, August 21, 2012. Following his arrest, Shirzad was transferred to Ahar prison.

Golrokh Iraee appealing for the life of hunger striking prisoner
Political prisoner Golrokh Iraee who has been imprisoned just for writing an unpublished book against the inhuman punishment of stoning, has sent out an open letter in which she has called on the international community to take action to save the life of political prisoner Saeed Shirzad who is still on hunger strike.
Saeed Shirzad, who has been imprisoned for his activities in defense of children's rights, has been on hunger strike for nearly two months in protest to the raid on political prisoners in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, transferring them to a high-security ward and confiscating the properties they have procured at their own expense.
Speaking out from behind bars, Ms. Iraee held European governments accountable for the life of this political prisoner since they turn a blind eye on flagrant violations of human rights in Iran to continue their commercial trade with the ruling clerical regime. In part of her letter, she points to the raid on the political prisoners' ward in Gohardasht and writes:
Implementation of this arbitrary decision by Mardani (warden of Gohardasht Prison in Karaj) indicates not only his personal spite but also the spirit of maximum lawlessness in this chaotic country. A country where the prosecutor and the judiciary must have been able to account for such volume of savagery if they were qualified. Here, anyone who has greater power is able to roam around as they wish and those who are knowledgeable enought to protest against this savagery become victimized.
All of these have happened in days and hours when Rouhani (the mullahs' president) was showing off his smile in front of flashing cameras from different countries.
Indeed, who is responsible for Saeed (Shirzad)'s life? Those powers who give credibility to this naked violence with their silence and smiles? Or the Prisons Organization that puts the likes of Mardani in these positions and gives them the license to play with the lives of people and do not account to anyone? Or the Judiciary and the Prosecutor's Office whose lack of independence has been proven time and again over the past years? Or the agencies that make such arrests and the interrogators who roam around like this?
The world's organizations and institutions who defend human rights must know that the lives of our friends and loved ones are in hands that are at their throats.
Saeed Shirzad continues to insist on his protest and hunger strike against the savagery of prison authorities. Saeed's life is in danger and our silence doubles the gravity of this threat.

who is Prisoner of conscience Soheil Arabi?+Latest news

















Political Prisoner: No Award Can Make Me Happy Unless We Overthrow the Oppressors
In response to the annual Reporters Without Borders Prize awarded to him, the Iranian political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, , said in a letter: “No reward can make me happy unless together hand in hand we uproot the oppression and overthrow the oppressors.”
In part of the letter, this political prisoner currently detained in Ward 8 of Evin prison said: “When most media were in the hands of two factions that compete in censorship and conservatism, when some people were paid to promote illiteracy and superstition to deceive us, I decided to be an independent journalist, so that I could reflect all the truth without retouching and censorship.”

Political Prisoner Held in Dangerous Prisoners Ward and Deprived of Family Visit
The political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, is still held in Hall 8 Ward 8 of Evin prison among dangerous prisoners and deprived of family visits.
In October this year, following Soheil Arabi’s protests against the prison warden who insulted the political prisoners, the prison authorities transferred him to the ward of the prisoners with heavy crimes.
Moreover, another political prisoner, Arash Sadeghi, who also protested the warden for insulting the political prisoners, was transferred to Gohardasht prison in exile.
Initially, Soheil was told that he would be staying in ward 8 only for three days, but he is still held in this ward against the principle of separation of offenses. This caused problems for this political prisoner. On Wednesday, November 1, one of the (dangerous) ordinary prisoners threatened to beat him up with a knife.

Tehran protest responds to call by Soheil Arabi’s mother
Monday morning, October 2, a protest gathering was staged in front of the Iranian regime's parliament in response to a call by the mother of Soheil Arabi, a political prisoner who is on dry hunger strike in Evin Prison.
The demonstrators while holding posters and placards demanded the release of Soheil Arabi and all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience as well as civil and guild activists.
Protest Rally in Front of Regime's Parliament to Release Political Prisoner Soheil Arabi

Dr. Mohammad Maleki, the first president of the Tehran University after the anti-monarchial revolution, sent a message of support to the protest gathering and said: “
"Our dear friend, Soheil Arabi, has been on hunger strike for several days because his legal and legitimate demands are not fulfilled and everyone knows that hunger strike is very dangerous.”
Mr. Maleki added: “The innocent mother of this son, after appealing to various organizations responsible for this issue and getting no answer is calling on all people and student activists to accompany her in front of the parliament in order to save his son’s life.”
He also supported Soheil Arabi’s mother and said: “I also ask people to gather on Monday, October 2 in front of the parliament to support this suffering mother and shout out their legal demands.”
According to reports, the Iranian regime security forces, attacked the rally after a few minutes and tried to disperse them but faced with the protestors resistance.
Soheil Arabi's mother thanked all the people who participated in the gathering on behalf of her son and said that her mood is changed.

The political prisoner, Soheil Arabi is on his 11th day of hunger strike on Tuesday October 3rd.
According to reports, an intelligence official in a meeting with Soheil Arabi September 30 asked him to end his strike for the expediency of the regime. The official went to visit Soheil Arabi in ward 7 of Evin prison and said to him that “it would be costly for the system" if he died during the holy month of Muharram.


Prisoner of conscience Soheil Arabi born August 21, 1985, is an Iranian man who has been sentenced to death in Iran on charges of insulting the Prophet Mohammad in his postings on Facebook.
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) agents arrested Arabi at his home in Tehran in November 2013. He then spent two months in the IRGC's Ward 2-A in Evin Prison. During interrogation, he was pressured into confessing his alleged crimes. He was then transferred to Section 350 of Evin, which is under control of the Iranian judiciary. On 30 August 2014, a five-judge panel of Branch 76 of the Criminal Court of Tehran sentenced Arabi to death for "insulting the Prophet of Islam" in eight Facebook accounts allegedly belonging to Arabi.
On 4 September 2014, Branch 15 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court also sentenced Arabi to three years in prison on charges of "insulting the Supreme Leader" and "propaganda against the state" in his postings on Facebook.
In late September 2015, his sentence was commuted to "reading 13 religious books and studying theology for two

Prisoner of conscience goes on a dry hunger strike
Prisoner of conscience Soheil Arabi who had been on a 40-day honger strike, has now switched to a dry hunger strike to protest his detention.
The political prisoner in in severe health condition after a 40-day hunger strike.
“I cannot be silent when I see people enduring torture without ever committing a crime. Here is Evin Prison where freethinkers are being punished. Do not tell me to keep silent because remaining silent is the worst betrayal. I am not crying out to save my own life, I want you to hear the voice of our innocence. I want to convey the voice of all jailed freethinkers such as Manuchehr Mohammadali, Mahmoud Beheshti Langroudi, Ali Shariati, Yousef Emadi, Arash Sadeghi, Savada Aghasar and my other friends in Ward 7 whose crime is knowing and expressing the truth. We were tried by judges who are the most corrupt human beings of our time. This is the third year that my daughter is going to school and I am not with her. I have gone on a dry hunger strike because I do not want her to see me in jail any more.
Soheil Arabi a 32-year-old photographer and was arrested by Revolutionary Guards Corps forces in 2013 for publishing his views on Facebook, sent an open letter from prison announcing that he went on a hunger strike on August 24 in protest to “charges brought against his family members by security agents of the Revolutionary Guards Corps”. He said he would not end his hunger strike until his mother and mother in law were cleared of the charges.

Iran Regime's Agents Intend to Create Religious Conflicts Against Political Prisoners
reports, interrogators of the Iranian regime’s ministry of intelligence are trying to create religious conflicts and clash among prisoners in Zahedan prison (South East of Iran) using their own mafia bands there.
Reports indicate that on Monday, August 9, 2017, a number of mafia bandits in Ward 3 of Zahedan prison tried to clash with political prisoners but the prisoners particularly the Sunni clerics who are incarcerated in Ward 3 showed patience and refrained from conflict or clash with the mafia bands to resolve the problem and the issue ended.
Wife of internet activist arrested
On the morning of Monday, July 31, Nasrin Na’imi was arrested by Iranian security forces and taken to an unknown location. There is no information available about the agency that made the arrest and the whereabouts of Ms. Na’imi.
Nasrin Na’imi is the wife of internet activist Soheil Arabi, who was arrested in January 2014 after the IRGC Sarallah Garrison filed charges against him. He was detained two months under interrogation at the IRGC detention center. Arabi was charged with insulting the leader, spreading propaganda against the government, and insulting the officials.

Maryam Akbari-Monfared was forced to spend her childhood visiting family members in state prisons and cemeteries. Her three brothers and sister, all political prisoners, were executed without trial in the 1980s, and now Maryam is a political prisoner herself.
 Maryam Akbari Monfared, political prisoner in Women’s ward in Evin prison, despite her illness, is deprived of medical treatment and hospital, while her illness’s condition is getting more complicated.
She suffers from severe pain in the knee and foot because of prevention of treatment for her rheumatism disease, and this is while prison officials, despite awareness of her physical condition, have refused to send her to medical centers for treatment.

Amnesty International Issue Urgent Action Notice for Iranian Female Prisoner Threatened With Extended Sentence
In May this year, political prisoner Maryam Akbari Monfared’s husband, Hassan Jafari Hatam, was summoned to Tehran for an interrogation. He was unaware of why he would be summoned, but he went to the Ministry of Intelligence office anyway.
When he got there, he was abused and officials said that his wife’s sentence would be extended by an extra three years. They explained to Hassan that this was because his wife was writing about her siblings, and the tens of thousands of other political prisoners, who were killed during the 1988 massacre, in open letters from prison.
Last year, Maryam filed a formal complaint calling on an investigation into the 1988 massacre and has since written several open letters.
On Monday, Amnesty International published an updated Urgent Action notice regarding her case saying that she was threatened to an extended sentence because she is seeking justice for the unlawful massacre of 1988.
Amnesty International’s statement pointed out that Maryam’s official complaint has not been processed, and as a punishment authorities have denied her urgent medical appointments that are essential to treat her thyroid problems and issues with rheumatoid arthritis which is giving her severe pain.
Maryam has been in prison since the end of 2009. She was given a 15 year sentence on the charge of “enmity against God”, however her only “crime” was to speak to relatives over the phone who are members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI). The PMOI is a legitimate opposition group that is fighting for the rights of the people of Iran.

Maryam Akbari denied medical leave and treatment
Iranian political prisoner Maryan Akbari Monfared needs medical treatment but Evin Prison authorities refuse to let her go to a hospital for treatment.
Maryam Akbari’s husband in an interview said, “Despite her detention for nearly eight years, she continues to be denied the right to a prison leave and does not enjoy any of her legal rights.”
Hassan Jaafari added, “Members of my wife’s family were executed in the 80’s and her siblings are members of the Mojahedin (PMOI/MEK). At the time, they were in Camp Ashraf in Iraq, and my wife had spoken to them several times on the phone. And this is her charge. I was present when my wife was tried at the 15th Branch of the Revolutionary Court. I was holding my young daughter. Judge Salavati told my wife, ‘You are paying the price for your brothers and sister.’ Then, I was left with three young girls whose mother has been in prison for six and a half years… It is nearly seven years that they’ve taken away my wife and I am left behind with three girl children. I have to constantly go to the Prosecutor’s Office and to the prison and then there’s work and the children,” he added.

who is political prisoner Atena Daemi? why she is under torture in Iran prison?


Atena Daemi

Atena Daemi reveals abysmal medical conditions in Evin Prison

Atena Daemi was supposed to be tried on new charges filed by Evin’s infirmary Sunday morning, October 22, 2017. The human rights activist who is presently incarcerated in the Women’s Ward of Evin Prison refused to attend the trial.
She had already declared that she would not attend the court because she deemed the trial as being “unjust” and the fact that the director of the infirmary, Charmahali, and its physician, Abbas Khani, had to be “prosecuted for denying medical treatment” to prisoners.
Instead, she sent out and published an open letter on the abysmal medical conditions in Evin Prison. Parts of her letter read:
There are no stretchers or wheelchairs in the prison, so four of us have to lift the patient and take her 25 steps down the stairs.
The patients’ stretcher does not fit into the ambulance and the back doors have to be left open during the patient’s transfer to hospital, leaving her head out of the car...
There is a small wooden bed in the corner of the infirmary which shakes and cannot bear the weight of even a 25-kilogram patient.
There is a physician who is called Shahriari. He is supposed to specialize in internal medicine but he is more like an interrogator who needs to know your charges before he starts his examinations to diagnose your illness!...
Of course, there are honorable doctors, too, who get reprimanded by the warden for attending to the patients, especially if they are political prisoners.
The pharmacy puts medications of sick prisoners in special boxes every night. Apparently, the boxes used to be white, but now they are black. Often times, the medications are, deliberately or inadvertently, put into the wrong boxes!!! The patient must swallow all her pills with one glass of water in front of the prison guard! There have been cases where the prisoner had to swallow 18 pills at once!
If you are a woman and you are prescribed by the physician to have a cardiograph or even receive an injection, then the male nurses are religiously forbidden to attend to you. Then, you would have to be sent to a hospital to receive a simple injection, which the prison warden forbids, or wait for the female nurse to come during the office hours…
Eventually, if there is an emergency, there has to be some back and forth, and then the doctor concludes that a female guard who is accompanying the patient and has no knowledge of anything would have to do the cardiograph. Then the patient is laid on the bed and the female guard stands over her head. She has to grab her chador (black veil) by one hand and with the other she has to clamp the sensors from over your clothes according to the instructions the male nurse gives from behind a partition...
Dental care is another story. Its cost for prisoners who have no source of income is more expensive that visitation fee for the best doctors in Iran and the world. And they put their hands without any gloves into your mouth and there is no autoclave...
The infirmary’s director, Abbas Khani, is a wrestling manager who claims to be a doctor. But he knows neither the principles of wrestlers nor the ethics of doctors.
He claimed that I was healthy. He denied that I was having pain. He cancelled my hospital visits and advised the Prosecutor’s Office that I was completely healthy. He continued to deny until I confronted him. I told him that he was a butcher and nothing more. He and his boss, Charmahali, brazenly filed complaints and leveled charges against me. When the trial was to convene for the second time, I did not attend.
They concealed the hospital’s test results from me. They insulted me and stressed that I was healthy. But Atena has a father and some acquaintances who would find out the test results and the CT scans for me despite all the trouble. The test results indicated that I had to be urgently operated on. My gallbladder had to be immediately emptied due to infection and kidney stones…
Eventually, after a few months and after it was proven that I was sick, I was hospitalized, underwent surgery under heavy security conditions to remove all the gallstones from my gallbladder.
Now, one can imagine the death of Hoda Saber in the same infirmary! And the deaths of Shahrokh Zamani, Afshin Osanlou, and Mohsen Dokmechi. And the conditions of Alireza Rajaii, Omid Kokabi and Arash Sadeghi, and Mohammad Jarrahi who recently died of chronic illness.
You can also imagine hundreds of sick prisoners who die in silence because of the crimes of Charmahali and Khani and their likes, without anyone knowing of their names or conditions...
I declare to Mohammad Javad Zarif, that as an Iranian, not only I’m not a member of the IRGC but I am in jail due to the IRGC’s crimes and maliciousness. Today, not only me, but hundreds of thousands of prisoners have lost our security and health due to the IRGC’s instructions to the prison wardens and heads of infirmary.
Atena Daemi, Women’s Ward, Evin Prison -October 22, 2017

Marc nelson paint of Atena DaemiAtena Daemi  is a 29 years old civil rights activist, children's rights activist, human rights activist and political prisoner in Iran.was arrested on October 22 of 2014 and was kept in solitary confinement and interrogated for 86 days. She was then transferred to the women’s wing of Evin prison.
Her trial was on March 15 of 2015 and this social activist was accused for propaganda against the regime, conspiracy against national security, insulting the supreme leader and insulting the founder of the Islamic revolution and was sentenced to 14 years of prison.
She was bailed out of prison on February 15 of 2017 and her sentence was reduced to 7 years in the appeals court.
As of 24 July 2017, Atena Daemi continues to be denied adequate specialized medical care at Tehran’s Evin prison to treat the effects of her recent 55-day hunger strike. On 31 May 2017, Atena Daemi ended the hunger strike she began on 8 April 2017. There is increased concern for the human rights defender’s health due to prison authorities’ continued refusal to transfer her to an external hospital to treat the severe health problems stemming from her hunger strike.

In an act of protest, Atena Daemi refuses to undergo surgery
Political prisoner Atena Daemi was returned to Iran’s Evin Prison after she did not agree to be hospitalized with handcuffs and shackles.
Her mother, Massoumeh Nemati, explained that Atena Daemi had to undergo gallbladder surgery at the Khomeini Hospital (on Monday, September 25, 2017).
Based on orders from the warden of Evin Prison, however, she was supposed to keep her handcuffs and shackles all the time while in hospital. She did not agree to this form of hospitalization and was returned to Evin Prison.
According to Mrs. Nemati, the warden of Evin had already banned Atena from having a companion or any visits. She wondered, “I do not understand how a prisoner, who has been imprisoned for her beliefs, could escape from the hospital? Where can she escape to?”
Mrs. Nemati also pointed out that the representative of Tehran’s Prosecutor, Haj MOradi, had made some promises. “Yesterday, Atena's father met with Haj Moradi, who verbally promised that she would not be handcuffed or shackled. He said she could even have visitors and even a companion. Today, after Atena was returned to prison, her father once again went to the Prosecutor’s Office but was told that they could do nothing and that the orders of the prison’s warden had to be carried out,” Mrs. Nemati said.

IRAN, 06 August 2017-- The political prisoner, Atena Daemi, who has been serving time in Evin Prison, was newly framed by the warden and the head of the infirmary as 'breaching the peace of prison' with her hunger strike.
Prison term for Atena Daemi, anti-death penalty activist!
 Prison term  for Atena Daemi, anti-death penalty activist!
On Monday, July 26, the human rights activist, Atena Daemi was transferred to Branch 4 of Evin's court from the women's ward.
The interrogator informed Atena Daemi that the prison's authorities have newly filed a complaint against her. Atena Daemi was briefed by the alleged crimes of 'breaching the peace of prison” and 'insulting the prison guards.'
Demand for Immediate & Unconditional Release of Atena Daemi, an Iranian Children
    Demand for Immediate & Unconditional Release of Atena Daemi, an Iranian Children's Rights Activist Petition
The head of Evin's infirmary was introduced as one of the plaintiffs in Atena Daemi's case. This healthcare official expressed concern since the media had earlier reflected his attitude towards the prisoners of conscience as well as the violation of rights. He also intimidated to revenge on some of the prisoners including Atena Daemi for naming him in their letters.
One of the notorious personnel of Evin Prison named Abbas Khani also filed a lawsuit against another prisoner, Maryam Zarghan who was on the brink of release.
The Warden of Evin Prison is another plaintiff of Atena Daemi. According to the interrogator, Atena Daemi is accused of breaching the peace of prison with her hunger strike and sit-in protests. She committed these acts to call for the implementation of human rights and review on her case. She is also charged with insulting the prison's authorities when they accused her of malingering following her hunger strike and her transfer to the infirmary.
 Atena Daemi is currently detained in women’s ward of Evin Prison.
 Atena Daemi is currently detained in women’s ward of Evin Prison. She is in her 9th months of temporary arrest and waiting for the verdict of the appeal's court.
In her defense, Atena Daemi requested the interrogator to allow her trusted physician to be present in the court and give testimony on her critical health condition in time of hunger strike so that they realize there was no malingering. The head of the infirmary is actually the person that should be prosecuted for the charges of depriving prisoners from medical services as well as accusing them.
A source close to Atena Daemi confirmed the report and stated, 'Abbas Khani visited the women's ward of Evin Prison and told Ms. Daemi that she didn't have any health issues, according to the medical tests. However, Atena believes that the hospital doctor has forged the medical records. The claim was made on the same day that Atena's doctor had given her Monuril (a strong antibiotic) for her illness.
It is noteworthy that Abbas Khani prohibited Atena’s transfer to the hospital on July 17, 2017, in retaliation, however, her transfer had been earlier confirmed by the prosecutor.'
