Four female political prisoners receive an additional 60 months in jail

The authorities of Qarchak Prison in Iran fabricated a new case for the four female political prisoners because they sent out a letter in June, calling for the boycott of the clerical regime’s sham presidential election. Each of them has been sentenced to an additional 15 months in prison.

The four political prisoners have received other sentences, including cleaning deserted areas for four months, writing a 40-page thesis on the crimes committed by the opposition PMOI/MEK, two years ban on leaving the country, and confiscation of their belongings.
