Vali Doroudi, a Kurdish political activist, has been held in prison for over 5000 days without being allowed a single day of furlough.
“Vali Doroudi, a Kurdish political activist, was arrested by revolutionary guard forces on June 2, 1996 while he had severe injuries. He is being held in solitary confinement in Yazd central prison and has been denied a single day of furlough for over five thousand days.” Reported Harana, a news agency run by Iranian human rights activists.
Under pressure from Kamyaran’s intelligence office, he was transferred to Kermanshah’s “Dizel Abad” Prison. He was held in that prison for several years and was tried on November 27 of that year by Kermanshah Revolutionary court for his alleged membership in one of the Kurdish political parties. He was sentenced to life imprisonment on December 30th.
After several years, he was banished from Kermanshah’s “Dizel Abad” prison to Yazd’s central prison. He was held in solitary confinement all these years, and his family was not able to visit him because of the long distance between Kamyaran and Yazd.
