Kurdish political prisoner Zeinab Jalalian, imprisoned for eight years now, is suffering from severe vision problems and may lose her eyesight.
Zeinab has been under intense pressure during the past few years by agents of the notorious Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and is still deprived of her weekly visits.
She has launched hunger strikes protesting her conditions, and according to prison physicians she must undergo eye surgery and may go blind if she doesn’t receive treatment.
Jalalian was born in 1982 in the city of Maku, northwestern Iran, and was arrested in 2007 by agents in Kermanshah’s Intelligence Department. She was first sentenced to death and then to life in prison.
MOIS agents have not declared her verdict and her situation remains in limbo in prison.
