Last update: May 2017, she released from prison.
Qadriyeh Qaderi is a Kurdish political prisoner who is kept in the female part of Yasouj Central Prison. Qaderi has currently suffers from a severe ear infection, migraines and difficulty of movement in one of her hands.
Qaderi is a 25 year old Kurdish citizen who was arrested during June 2011 in Orumiyeh and was kept in solidarity confinement for two months following her arrest. Through these two months Qaderi was ruthlessly tortured, both mentally and physically, in order to obtain her confession. Her torture was so severe that even after her transfer out of solidarity confinement she was unable to physically move or consume food or water for two weeks. Qaderi was then sentenced to 10 years in prison by the Orumiyeh Revolutionary Court, accused of coorperation with the PKK. After an appeal of the sentence her term was reduced to 7 years in prison.
Qaderi has been transferred in and out of hospital several times in the last three months, due to her worsening health condition, where physicians have requested a CT Scan- which is yet to be carried out. Reports claim that Qader is forcibly transferred in handcuffs and a chador every time she is taken to hospital and this has caused protests from other women in the prison.
After a request of transfer from Orumiyeh Prison to Yasouj Prison was made to both attorney’s in each district, it was agreed by the courts that transferred would be permitted upon the payment of one billion Tomans to the courts. Although Qaderi’s assurance payment was made in full and a request of transfer was sent to Orumiyeh Prison Qaderi was kept there until the 6th of July 2013 when she was finally moved to Yasouj Prison.
