RAHANA: Kefayat Malek Mohammadi is a 60-year old citizen who was arrested after she participated in the 2009 post-election street protests.
On Ashura Day 2009 (27 December 2009), Kefayat Malek Mohammadi, 60, and her husband Ali Asghar Mahmoudian, were arrested during the Tehran post-election protests, in the aftermath of the disputed 2009 presidential election. She spent months in solitary cells and the General Ward of Evin Prison in a state of limbo before her case was sent to trial.
In September 2010, Branch 28 of Tehran Revolutionary Court under Judge Moghisseh completed the trial of Kefayat Malek Mohammadai on charges of "assembly and collusion with the intent to act against national security," and sentenced her to five years in prison. Her prison sentence was upheld at appeals level.
Kefayat Malek Mohammadi has served time inside Evin Prison's Methadone Ward, which is the holding ward of dangerous criminals such as drug addicts. Prisoners inside this ward are allowed only very short fresh air breaks and are not allowed to have access to books, the prison library, telephone calls, and in-person visitation.
She is currently inside the Women's Ward of Evin Prison.
