According to the Melli-Mazhabi news site, Negar Haeeri was arrested for giving interviews and publicizing the poor health of her imprisoned father.

She was arrested on May 25, 2014, and on the order of Deputy Prosecutor at Evin, she was transferred to Gharchak prison.

Previously, Negar Haeeri was also arrested and imprisoned in 2011 and 2012 and was released on bail. She was tried and sentenced to two years imprisonment plus five years suspended imprisonment sentence. Her law practice license was also suspended for ten years.

Gharchak prison in Varamin has a very unsanitary condition and Negar is incarcerated among the drug traffickers.

This prison holds inmates in excess of it’s maximum capacity and suffers from overcrowding. Due to this overcrowding and lack of space Negar has to sleep in the hallway near the restrooms.

Despite the very hot weather, the air conditioning system in this prison is not working, making conditions very difficult for the prisoners.

Other than Negar Haeeri, Basmeh Aljabouri, an Iraqi citizen, and Roya Saberi Nejad are the two other political prisoners that are incarcerated in Gharchak prison.
