Arrested in September 2000, political prisoner Saeid Sangar, from Piranshahr, was sentenced to death by branch 1 of Sanandaj Revolutionary court presided by judge Fatemi, on charges of ‘waging war against God’ and ‘having links with PMOI (MEK)’. The sentence, however, was reduced to life in prison later in 2003.
After spending two years in ward 209 of Evin prison, the political prisoner was transferred to Urmia prison in 2003. He was later transferred to Sanandaj prison in November 2007, and once again back to Urmia prison eight years later in September 2015.
