Political Prisoners with Medical Conditions

by Hooshang Tarreh-Gol on

Part of a soon to be released interantional appeal: condition of three labor activists:

November 12, Mr. Ali Nejati was transferred to Dezful's Fajr prison,
based on trumped up charges. According to reports he was accompanied to
his trial by family and fellow workers. Mr. Nejati, a  leading member
of Sugar Cane Workers' Syndicate had already spent six months in jail
based on the same bogus charges. While imprisoned new charges
were brought up against him, and although he was cleared of all charges
in the preliminary court proceedings, subsequently he was sentenced to
spend another year in prison. Mr.Nejati is being sent to jail while he's
suffering from severe heart ailment, recently had a heart operation.
Due to his  condition he
has to follow a certain daily diet, accompanied by medications, plus monthly check up by his physician.

Reza Shahabi
, the treasurer of Tehran Bus Drivers' Syndicate, has also
been incarcerated for more than a year and half now. While he's enduring
extreme hardship in jail, not a single charge has been brought up
against him in the past 19 months. Mr Shahabi also suffers from various
ailments, and was recently transferred to a hospital for medical imaging
and tests for acute discomfort of shoulders and neck.

Ebrahim Maddadi
another member of Bus Drivers' Syndicate  board of
directors, has been imprisoned for the past three years. He suffers from
severe eye debility and diabetes. While he's in the last
months of his sentence, he has not received any medical attention, which
he is entitled to."

All of the above not to forget the case of Mansour Osanlo and his medical condition, his unjust imprisonment for five years, attempts to cut his tongue, which resulted in15 stiches, many a  beatings to a pulp,..  and the incredible hell his family; his pregnant daughter-in-law, his brother, ...have gone through.

Here as usual I noticed

Here as usual I noticed and notice and will notice a typical Iranian (disgusting behavior) of issuing fatwa that who is a traitor and who is not.  Furthermore, The responsiblity of lives of anybody like Mohsen Dokmehchi only partially lie on murderous IslamicRegime. The responsiblity lies on the shoulders of all Iranian Be-Ghayrat like me and you.


The buck stops at IRI…

by Bavafa on

Regardless of he being a supporter of MEK, which I consider them a traitor group/cult or simply an Iranian who had decided to stand up for his rights by refusing to dance to the tone of IRI, the responsibility of [loss] of his life rest squarely on IRI shoulder.

  This is a crime against Iranian people and by extension against humanity and IRI must and will be held accountable for such crimes.

So depressing and sad

by Truthseeker9 on

There have been so many reports about the poor condition of prisoners, many suffering from life-threatening illnesses and do not receive medication. This is nothing new, all depressing. Kaveh Kordi-Moghadam, a political prisoner from the Kurdish minority, passed away in hospital due to crucial delay in receiving proper medical treatment. The doctors who diagnosed his colorectal and lung cancer in prison warned for several months about the need to hospitalize him, however the judicial officials withheld the approval of his leave from prison until it was too late. So many examples, just dispicable, depressing ...
