Surviving Rape in Iran's Prisons

40. Two day later, I left Iran and crossed into Turkey. I went to the U.N. office and filed an application.

41. I do not know who was responsible for my arrest. After my release I had a TV interview which made the government admit in an article that it was the IRGC that arrested me that day.

42. After I fled, they arrested my brother and father. My father was detained for three days. My father received summons to appear in a Revolutionary court. I do not know what happened to him. It’s been five years since I’ve been in touch with my father or spoken to him. My cousin whom I was in touch via email updated me about the incidents that happened to my family after I left. He told me that my father and brother were pressured to ask me to return to the country and confess on TV that I’ve lied about being raped in prison.
