The life of a prisoner of conscience in the notorious Qarchak Prison for women is in danger.
Prisoner of conscience Shahnaz Kian Asl (Kiani) was transferred to the dispensary of Qarchak Prison of Varamin on Saturday, May 19, 2018, upon insistence of inmates, but was returned to the ward without receiving medical care.
She had been offended and humiliated in the clinic by the doctor and nurse.
Ms. Kian Asl, a Gonabadi dervish, is one of the eleven Yaresan women imprisoned under harsh conditions since February 20, 2018. She suffers from diabetes and her symptoms have aggravated due to mal-nutrition. Presently, a new mass has appeared in her chest area and she has contracted ulcer and GI inflammation, but has not been cared for at the dispensary.
Ms. Kian Asl has declared that in protest to the unlawful and shameful behavior of the doctor and nurse of the dispensary, she will not refer to the prison’s clinic. Her lack of access to medical treatment and the necessary medicines, has put her life in serious danger.
