Prison guards who transferred political prisoner Nargess Mohammadi to hospital for treatment have filed a complaint against her, arousing her protest.
Ms. Mohammadi, Vice President of the League of Human Rights Advocates in Iran, wrote an open letter in November to Tehran’s Prosecutor upon return from hospital and complained about the way she had been treated by her guards. She said they chained her to the bed and did not leave the room when she had to take off her clothes for medical examination or surgery. Finally, she refused to go to the operation room after her guard refused to leave the operation room and returned to prison without final diagnosis of her illness.
The new complaint may be related to verbal exchanges between Ms. Mohammadi and her guards in such tense situations at the hospital.
In another development, it was reported prison guards prevented her relatives from giving Ms. Mohammadi the pictures of her twins who have been sent abroad and she has not been in contact with since June. In response to her request to her inquiry, prison guards answered, “We have been instructed to deal with you in this manner.”
