      Documents released by the Edalat-e-Ali Hacker Group from the Evin Prison database, made available to the Edalat Khaneh, indicate that Shirin Esmaeilzadeh, in her capacity as the Deputy Head of Women's Ward, at Evin Prison, is responsible for depriving female political prisoners of their basic rights, filing false cases leading to their exile to break the resistance and collective protests of female political prisoners.

      Maryam Akbari Monfared, Atena Daemi, and Golrokh Iraee are among the prisoners who have been placed in these conditions. Based on reports from Lotfi and other prison authorities, Maryam Akbari Monfared has been deprived of meetings and medical treatment several times and has recently been exiled to Semnan Prison following new charges filed against her. She has now spent over 13 years of her 15-year sentence in imprisonment.
