GVF – Iranian photojournalist Babak Bordbar has been temporarily released from Evin prison.

According to the Free Journalists website, Bordbar was released after enduring seven months of imprisonment in Evin prison. The 25-year-old from the city of Shiraz was arrested during the Ashura protests on 27 December. He was detained for the sole reason of taking photographs which he was doing with official authorisation.

Bordbar was one of the seventeen political prisoners in Evin prison’s ward 350 who had gone on hunger strike on 26 July in order to complain about harsh prison conditions as well as solitary confinement. There is no further news about the other prisoners currently on strike. At least five have been taken to a medic following the deterioration in their health.
