Iran: Elham Farahani denied access to medical treatment

Prisoner of conscience Elham Farahani has been denied access to physiotherapy after she broke her arm and was operated on twice.

She cannot properly move her arm and the specialist doctor has prescribed her 30 sessions of physiotherapy but prison officials have repeatedly cancelled her appointments for physiotherapy which must be done outside the prison. Ms. Farahani is suffering from great pain and there is a risk that her arm would not ever return to normal condition.

Elham Farahani, 54, is a Bahaii serving her four-year prison sentence in the Evin Prison. She and her husband and son are imprisoned for their faith.
