A female political prisoner who is in a critical condition has been denied medical treatment in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison.
Ms. Sedigheh Moradi, 54, is suffering from cervical spondylosis (arthritis of the neck) which began several months ago and is causing her severe pain.
She also has eye sight problems due to severe blows she received to her head during interrogations by members of the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security….
Although the family of this political prisoner have declared to pay any costs related to medical services, the interrogators will not allow it.
This is the third time that Ms. Sedigheh Moradi has been imprisoned for her beliefs. She had been arrested and imprisoned twice before in the 1980s.
The last time she was arrested was in May 2009 and she was held for seven months in solitary confinement in ward 20 of the prison where she was subjected to physical and psychological torture. Then she was transferred to section 209 of the prison.
She has been sentenced to ten years imprisonment.
