Following news of the transfer of Narges Mohammadi to hospital, a number of political and civil activists, including Dr. Mohammad Malaki, former head of Tehran University and his wife went to the hospital on the morning of 13 October to visit her.
However, hospital officials prevented them from visiting Mohammadi.
“Today we were informed that Mrs. Narges Mohammadi was transferred to Iran Mehr Hospital on Sunday (October 11). We went to the hospital. Visits began at 3 pm but they did not allow us to see her. We waited for 45 minutes, yet they still didn’t allow us in. Dr. Mohammad Malaki and his wife were there with Mrs. Mohammadi’s lawyer. However, we were never allowed even a short visit. On 6 October, Mrs. Mohammadi was the subject of improper conduct by Evin Prison guards during her transfer to receive a Heparin injection, and she suffered a nervous breakdown which resulted in the elevation of her blood pressure. This incident led to her transfer to the Evin Prison clinic,” an eyewitness said.
