Political prisoner Ameneh Zaheri Sari was brutalized by prison guards in the Sepidar Prison of Ahvaz.
The family of Ameneh Zaheri Sari said, “Ameneh has been hurt in the arm due to the beatings and is presently deprived of receiving medical services to treat her arm.”
Ameneh Zaheri Sari had previously suffered physical problems with parts of her body badly swelling. According to the doctor working at the dispensary, she must be quickly transferred to hospital for medical examinations and care. Prison authorities, however, have so far prevented her dispatch to hospital.
Ameneh Zaheri Sari was supposed to be freed on a 300-million-toman bail, but her temporary release has also been suspended.
