Sotoudeh’s Husband “Nasrin Denied Visitation Yet Again, on the 33rd Day of Her Hunger Strike”

ImageFrom the Facebook of Reza Khandan the husband of incarcerated human rights lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh now on the 33rd day of her hunger strike behind bars….

We were yet again deprived of visiting with Nasrin today.  We have had no news of Nasrin, now on the 33rd day of her hunger strike, since last Monday [November 12th, 2012].  There has been no contact by phone and our repeated daily contacts with the prosecutor’s office, the prison and the visitation area have been to no avail.  

I am sure that they are overjoyed by our current predicament; overjoyed by their sense of power, their ability to flex their muscles through exerting continued pressure on prisoners and their families and creating so much concern and stress, with such ease amongst our friends and family members.

Nasrrin was never officially banned from visitations and yet since her illegal transfer from the general ward at Evin to the Intelligence Ministry’s Ward 209, she has effectively been denied of all visitation rights.

By the end of this week she will have completed 20 days in solitary confinement and the next official visitation [next Sunday] falls on Ashura that happens to be an official holiday.

امروز هم بدون ملاقات بودیم.
از دوشنبه ی گذشته تا حالا از نسرین که وارد سی و سومین روز اعتصاب غذا شده است بی خبریم. نه تلفنی و نه خبری.
مراجعات هر روزه ی ما به دادستانی و زندان و سالن ملاقات هم بی فایده بود. و مطمئنم چقدر از این موضوع خوشحال اند که آنقدر قدرت دارند که می توانند خانواده و دوستانی را به راحتی آب خوردن این همه در نگرانی و استرس نگه دارند. و قدرت شان در فشار به زندانی و خانواده به رخ بکشند.
نسرین قرار ممنوع الملاقات ندارد ولی عملا از وقتی که به طور غیر قانونی از زندان اوین خارج و به انفرادی 209 اطلاعات منتقل شده است ممنوع الملاقات است.
20 روز انفرادی او اوخر این هفته تمام می شود و اولین روزی که می شد او را ملاقات کرد یکشنبه ی آینده است که مصادف شده است با عاشورا و تعطیل رسمی …
