Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN): Hiwa Mosazadeh, a prisoner from Piranshahr, who had sewn his lips and gone on hunger strike since Tuesday, May 28, 2019, in protest to his transfer from the Open Prisoners’ Section of Naghadeh Prison to the quarantine section of the prison, is still on strike.
This prisoner was transferred to Orumiyeh Central Prison on the fourth day of his strike, for unknown reasons, on orders from the authorities of Naghdeh Prison.
He will continue his hunger strike until his legal requests for being transferred to the Open Prisoners’ Section of Naghdeh Prison are fulfilled.
Hiwa Mosazadeh has been in prison since a year ago on charges of being involved in foreign exchange market. He was sentenced to five years of imprisonment and transferred to the open section of the Naghadeh Prison. However, he has been transferred to the quarantine section of this prison since April on orders of the Prosecutor’s Office.
