Kurdish Political Prisoner in Iran on Hunger Strike to Protest New Charge for Sending a Message to Kobanê

Mohammad Sediq Kaboudvand, a prominent Kurdish human rights activist who is in his ninth year of incarceration at Tehran’s Evin Prison, has gone on hunger strike to protest the new charges that have been brought against him.

Kaboudvand’s wife, Parinaz Baghban Hassani, told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that he started the hunger strike on May 8, 2016 “because since last winter he has been summoned to the Judiciary three times and each time formally charged with new accusations.”

“He is on hunger strike to protest these false charges and because his multiple prison sentences have not been combined [under Article 134 of Iran’s New Islamic Penal Code],” added Hassani.

Article 134 allows for only the longest sentence to be served in cases that involve convictions on multiple charges.Kaboudvand, the former president of the Human Rights Organization of Kurdistan and editor of Payam-e Mardom (“People’s Message”), a Kurdish-Persian publication, was recommended for conditional release in February 2016 by the chief warden of Evin Prison, but the prosecutor refused to consent.
 
The new charges against Kaboudvand accuse him of sending a message to the people of Kobani—a city in northeastern Syria with a predominantly Kurdish population—congratulating their successful defense against an onslaught by Islamic State fighters, and calling for peace between Kurds and the Turkish government. Kaboudvand has also been accused of writing a university paper about the human rights situation in Iran’s prisons.
“My husband is in prison,” said Baghban Hassani. “How could he be sending messages to Kurds and Turkey?”
