Three teenage girls were detained by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on August 24 in Javanrud, western Iran.
According to the Hengaw Organization website, the three girls were identified as 16-year-old Tara Ahmadi, 14-year-old Sonya Karimi, and 14-year-old Parya Fathi. They were detained for unknown and illegal reasons and released after one day. An informed source said Tara attempted suicide the day of her release. She hanged herself at home and was transferred to the hospital. Tara is currently in critical condition.
It is unclear what events took place in the one day they were detained that caused Tara’s suicide attempt.
Last week, a group of hackers known as Edalat Ali, or “Ali’s Justice” published hacked footage from Tehran’s Evin Prison security cameras. The footage showed maltreatment of prison authorities with prisoners, torture, and other ill-treatment within the past year.
In September 2019, 29-year-old Sahar Khodayari, also known as the Blue Girl, set herself on fire when she found out she had to serve another six months of prison for trying to sneak into Azadi Stadium dressed as a man to watch a soccer game.
Her sister said Sahar was under “serious mental pressure” in Qarchak Prison and was afraid. The notorious Qarchak Prison is a women’s prison near Tehran known for its horrid conditions.
