Islamic Republic Denies Medical Care To Political Inmates

Tuesday, 11/15/2022

Reports say the health condition of two detained Iranian activists is deteriorating as the Iranian regime denies proper medical care to them.

Arash Sadeghi, 36, is one of these inmates, whose father on Tuesday warned about his physical condition, saying he was arrested despite suffering from bone cancer and does not have access to medicine and treatment.

In a video published on social media, Hossein Sadeghi also pointed out that “if Arash is not treated for two months, he will not survive.”

“After the start of nationwide protests in Iran, Arash answer my calls, but later on a short call he announced he was arrested and was in ward 209 of Evin Prison which belongs to the intelligence ministry,” added the father.

Reports say Yashar Tahidi, a political prisoner, who was injured by several bullets last month following the disturbances at Evin prison, is denied proper medical care despite his deteriorating physical condition.

According to HRANA News Agency, Yashar is also suffering from “attention deficit disorder” and needs regular medication, but this is not given to him due to shortages.

Yashar Tohidi has been serving his sentence of 2 years and 9 months in Evin prison since June 7, 2022.

The health condition of the well-known political prisoner Hossein Ronaghi is also worsening. His brother Hassan said in a tweet Tuesday that he is in Evin Prison's infirmary on a dry food strike and has not received any treatment yet.
