Shabnam Madadzadeh
July 14, 2012

In her letter, published in Persian by the Committee of Human Rights Reporter, the detained student activist, Shabnam Madadzadeh, describes the difficult conditions of detention in Qarchak-Varamin Prison, where she was detained for a short while.
Ms. Madadzadeh who has been in prison for four years, was transferred back to Evin Prison when many people voiced their concern over her detention in a prison known for its horrendous conditions. Ms Madadzadeh published her testimony when two of her cellmates in Evin, Ms. Kobra Banazadeh and Sediqeh Moradi were transferred to Qarchak-Varamin prison. Ms. Madadzadeh is particularly concerned with this prison's hygienic conditions and highlights serious undernourishment and mistreatment of inmates in Qarchak-Varamin prison.
