Pol. prisoner with risk of cancer, no treatment allowed
Arash Sadeghi is in need of urgent medical care but authorities will not allow him to be hospitalized outside prison. Doctors have warned that he is close to suffering from cancer as his digestive conditions are worsening.
Sadeghi’s family has requested the prosecutor to have their son transferred to a hospital but their request has been rejected.
This political prisoner has faced physical and mental pressures terribly. He is currently detained in Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj. Arash Sadeghi and his wife Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee were arrested together on 6 September 2014.
Another jailed Iranian, Majid Asadi, is also known to be diagnosed with cancer.
