The Islamic Revolutionary Court of Orumiyeh has collectively sentenced three Kurdish political prisoners to several years behind bars in a one-hour trial.
A reliable source told Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN) that “three Kurdish political prisoners Kamal Hussein Ramezan [who is serving a long jail sentence at ward 12 of Orumiyeh prison), Ali Yeganeh kept in juvenile section of the prison and Abdollah Amoui Milan, previously temporarily released on bail, were called on 16 August to the branch 2 of the Revolutionary Court of Orumiyeh that told them they had been issued long-term jail sentences”.
Kamal Hossein Ramezan has been sentenced to 10 years and one day behind bars.
Ali Yeganeh has been sentenced to five years and one day in prison.
Abdullah Amoui Milan has been sentenced to two years and one day.
The court session had taken place under the presidency of Iranian judge Sheikhloo, and according to the KHRN source the jail sentences for the three political prisoners were issued during a one-hour court session.
They were also informed that they could not benefit from any sorts of amnesty or early releases in the country, and that they must serve their sentences until the very last day in prison as announced at the one-hour court session.
Kamal Hossein Ramezan, 31, is a Syrian Kurd from the town of Serekaniye (also known as Ras al-Ayin in Syrian Kurdistan Rojava).
He was arrested in June 2014 with Ali Yeganeh and Abdollah Amoui Milan, both of whom Iranian Kurds from Makou.
IRGC forces had arrested them at the neighbourhood in Orumiyeh.
They were immediately transferred to an IRGC security detention centre following their arrest, according to KHRN sources.
Mr Ramezan was kept for four months at the IRGC security Intelligence Ministry detention centres, where he was interrogated for alleged membership in Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
The other two detained defendants were kept in solitary confinement cells of the security detention centre of Oroumiyeh for a few more weeks before they were transferred to Orumiyeh prison.
They all were later transferred to Orumiyeh Court, where they were told that they are charged with ‘Moharebeh’ (enmity against God) for alleged PKK membership.
Abdollah Amoui Milan was temporarily released on bail beginning of this year.
Since the beginning of this year, Kamal Hossein Ramezan has been subjected to continuous pressure at the Intelligence Ministry and the IRGC offices at Orumiyeh prison.
He was transferred for to a high security IRGC detention centre on 17 Feb 2016 and held there for two months.
He has since been harassed in order to collaborate with the Iranian government agencies and make televised confessions on Iranian state TVs.
