Weekly visits of a number of female political prisoners with their children have been denied for the past three weeks. This action has been taken without any explanation from the prison officials or the district attorney’s office.
Faran Hesami with a four year old child, Maryam Akbari Monfared mother of three girls ages seven, thirteen and fourteen, Sadigheh Moradi with a fourteen year old daughter, and Fariba Kamalabadi mother of a sixteen year old daughter are the political prisoners that have been denied visitation with their children.
So far, the families of these political prisoners’ pursuit of this matter with the district attorney’s office has had no results toward restoring their visitation rights.
This is not the first time that these four prisoners have been deprived of visits with their children. Depriving visits between these women and their children inflicts added mental and emotional pressure on these women and their children
