Kurdish civil rights activist Hiro Ghadimi faces inadequate conditions and is denied access to necessary medical care in the women’s ward of Sanandaj Prison.
The Kurdish Human Rights Network (KHRN) said in a statement that Kurdish civil rights activist Hiro Ghadimi faces inadequate conditions and is denied access to necessary medical care in the women’s ward of Sanandaj Prison.
The statement said that "Ghadimi, who suffers from migraines, high blood pressure, and a herniated disc, has been transferred to solitary confinement in recent days, where she is unable to move due to her medical conditions and experiences ongoing health challenges."
Officials at Sanandaj Prison have refused to accept medication for Ghadimi from her family, depriving her of essential medical treatment since her arrest.
The statement added that "the civil rights activist, known for her advocacy work on children’s and women’s rights, as well as her assistance to individuals with special needs in Saqqez, was arrested by security forces at her family home on 12 September.
Recently, one of the branches of the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office in Saqqez extended Ghadimi’s detention for an additional month."
Throughout her detention, she has been denied access to legal representation.
