HRANA news agency reported on April 30 that Shirko Maarefi, a political prisoner in Saqqez prison who has been on hunger strike since a few days ago, has been transferred to solitary confinement by the henchmen of the clerical regime.
The clerical dictators ruling Iran transfer prisoners to solitary confinement prior to their executions. As such, there are fears of Shirko’s imminent execution.
Shirko Maarefi was arrested about 3 years ago for charges of “moharebeh” or fighting against the religious government and was sentenced to death. Recent reports indicated that this political prisoner was verbally notified that his execution orders would be carried out in early May.
