Atena Daemi on hunger strike for one month

8 May 2017 marks one month since Atena Daemi began a hunger strike in protest at the three-month and one day additional sentence that was handed down to her and her sisters by Branch 1163 of the Qods Criminal Court on 3 April 2017 for “insulting officers on duty”. Atena Daemi is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence at Evin prison in Tehran.

Atena Daemi has advocated for children’s and women's rights in Kobane and Gaza, as well as against capital punishment in Iran. She has also provided support for children who are suffering as a result of fighting in Syria’s Kurdish regions. Initially sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment in May 2015 for “insulting the Supreme Leader” and for “assembly and collusion against national security”, her term was reduced to seven years on appeal in September 2016. In February 2016 she was released on bail but was re-arrested on 26 November that year.

In a recent statement, issued from prison, Atena Daemi wrote, “Unfortunately, unacceptable pressure on prisoners and the harassment of their families is a common practice in Iran. So, in protest against this inhumane procedure, I will remain on hunger strike until the authorities grant complete and unconditional freedom to my sisters (Ensieh and Haniyeh), acquitting them of all charges and dropping the bail bond which has been taken from my family. I hereby announce that the prosecution (the Iranian Revolutionary Guards) as well as the Iranian judiciary and the prosecutor of Tehran are responsible for any damage to my health and my life because of the lack of impartiality and independence in the way in which the case was processed.”

The court’s ruling against Atena Daemi and her sisters came after the human rights defender submitted a mistreatment complaint against agents of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) who used excessive force while arresting her on 26 November 2016. The Iranian courts have thus far failed to look into this complaint, which she made in late 2016. When Atena Daemi’s lawyer asked the court about her client’s complaint against the IRGC, the court said that it had no knowledge of its existence. In contrast, the complaint of the IRGC which led to the aforementioned additional sentence was immediately taken up.

Contesting the sentence, Atena Daemi carried out a sit-in protest on the day of sentencing outside a guard station in Evin prison. When the authorities failed to respond to her protest, she began a hunger strike on 8 April 2017. According to the defender’s mother, Masoumeh Nemati, “Every time Atena’s father went to the prosecutor’s office, the authorities insisted that she was being looked after and was fine. Finally, Atena confronted the director of the prison clinic and asked him why he was lying and giving false reports about her health. The director told my daughter he had no proof she was sick and said she was lying.”

Front Line Defenders is concerned by the Iranian authorities’ failure to address the legal and human rights issues highlighted in Atena Demi’s case, including the imposition of an additional punitive sentence for making a legitimate complaint against excessive use of force by the officers who arrested her. Vaguely worded charges such as “propaganda against the regime” or “insulting the supreme leader” are used to silence critical voices and block attempts to hold the authorities to account. A recent development has been the introduction of a provision in Iran’s new Penal Code allowing for the imposition of sentences exceeding the statutory maximum when there are more than three crimes.

Front Line Defenders calls on the government of Iran to immediately release Atena Daemi, drop all charges against her and her sisters and, as a matter of urgency, to ensure that she has access to all necessary medical support while on hunger strike. Front Line Defenders condemns the additional sentence issued against Atena Daemi, the sentences against her sisters, as well as the current ongoing seven-year sentence against Atena Daemi, as it believes that they were issued solely in reaction to legitimate and peaceful human rights activities.

Imprisoned human rights defender Atena Daemi on hunger strike

On 8 April 2017, human rights defender, Atena Daemi, began a hunger strike in protest at the three-month and one day prison sentence that was handed down to her and her sisters by Branch 1163 of the Qods Criminal Court on 3 April 2017 for “insulting officers on duty”.

On 3 April 2017, an additional three months and one day were added to Atena Daemi’s seven-year prison sentence. Both of Atena Daemi’s sisters were also sentenced to three months and one day in prison with a one-year suspended sentence.

When the authorities failed to respond to her protest, the human rights defender began a hunger strike on 9 April 2017.
