Nasim, jailed Christian in women’s wing of Evin Prison in Iran sent to hospital, battling heart problems

Reports from Iran are that jailed Christian Maryam Naghash-Zargaran, known as Nasim, is battling heart disease and is headed to the hospital.

According to Mohabat News, Nasim was transferred to Modares hospital to be treated for her heart disease. Having had heart surgery before, mental pressures in prison resulted in her heart attack, and as a result she was transferred to hospital.

She has suffered depression due to inappropriate conditions in prison.

Nasim, age 35, is currently serving her four year prison sentence in the women’s ward of Evin prison.

Since the time of her arrest, security authorities have searched her house several times, confiscating her personal belongings as well as any Christian related material.

Later she was called for her trial where she was sentenced to four years in prison for “propagating against the Islamic regime, and colluding to undermine national security”.

She appealed the ruling but the appeals court upheld her sentence.

Her name hadn’t been published before among Christian prisoners in Evin, which raises speculation that there are more unknown Christian prisoners in Iranian prison
