Select Language:

Political prisoner Mehran Qarebaghi has developed a heart condition in the Prison of Behbahan, in the southwestern Khuzestan Province.

Mehran Qarehbaghi is in dire heath conditions.

The Intelligence Ministry has filed a news case against political prisoner Mehran Qarebaghi, accusing him of propaganda against the state and in favor of the opposition PMOI/MEK while in prison. Mohammad Hossein Ansarifar is also accused in this case on similar charges.

A reliable source says Mehran Qarebaghi has developed a heart condition due to stress and all the pressures he endures in prison.

The clerical regime’s Judiciary has detained Mehran Qarebaghi for two years without trial. He is under constant pressure.

Political prisoner Mehran Qarebaghi and Mohammad Hossein Ansarifar were abruptly transferred from Behbahan Prison to the detention center of the Intelligence Department of Ahvaz and taken under interrogation.

While the previous case against Mr. Qarebaghi remains undecided, the Intelligence Ministry has filed another case against him.

The Revolutionary Court of Mahshahr has set a 3 billion Toman bail for the temporary release of Mehran, but the Intelligence Ministry rejected the ruling and prevented his release.

Born in 1992, Mehran Qarebaghi has a bachelor’s of science in Agriculture.

Agents of the IRGC Intelligence of Behbahan arrested him and Majid Khademi on January 18, 2020. Almost after a month of interrogations, they relocated him to the Prison of Behbahan.

After some time, the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office of Behbahan arraigned Mr. Qarebaghi of his charges including “propaganda against the state, complicity in the destruction and setting fire to public property, complicity in the disruption of public order, complicity in making non-military inflammable instruments, membership in one of the opposition groups (The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and corruption on Earth.

His case was subsequently referred to the Revolutionary Court of Mahshahr where they set a bail of 3.5 billion Tomans for him. Mr. Qarebaghi was deprived of visitations from February until May 2020.
The Revolutionary Court sentenced Mehran Qarebaghi to three years in prison on charges of “insulting the (mullahs’) leader” and “propaganda against the state” for a previous case, two years of which will be implemented according to the Article 134 of the Islamic Punishment Law. He is presently serving his sentence in the Prison of Behbahan.

Mohammad Hossein Ansarifar is also detained on drug-related charges.
