White Torture- Gradual Death Is Iran’s Prisoners’ Fate

Exclusive detailed report of illness prisoners in Iran

We would like to inform you based on the human rights reports from United Nations and according

received news from prisoners; the situation of Iranian prisons is horrible especially for the jailed political prisoners.

 

According to UN experts, the prison physicians have recognized the prisoners’ need for specialized medical treatment, but the government has not responded to the requests (also Links 1, 2). They have stated that the deteriorating health of the prisoners is due to abuse, poor living conditions, long-term solitary confinement and torture occurring in the prison.

Numerous death reports received of those prisoners who are sick and in horrible condition due to torture and illness. Authorities have still refused health treatment and put them under pressure. These sad reports have caused concern of prisoner’s relatives.

Several recent reports from prisons throughout Iran, including Karoon Prison in Ahwaz, Adel Abad Prison in Shiraz, Bandar Abbas Central Prison, Vakil Abad Prison in Mashhad, and others have decried a lack of adequate healthcare facilities, clean drinking water, and poor nutrition and sanitation.

Excruciating condition of prisoners forces them to take sedative pill. In most cases, they get addicted to the pills and will continue after release.

Some former prisoners have expressed the belief that prison authorities prevent access to medical care and adequate living standards with the goal of wearing down prisoners in a kind of war of attrition.

Many prisoners attempt to confront the daily injustices of prison life the only way they can—through hunger strikes. But in turn, these hunger strikes exacerbate existing illnesses and can also lead to new ones.

The names of prisoners who need immediate health treatment are as follows:

  1. Mr. Hossain Kazemeyni Broujerdi, 54, still has not been afforded access to medical care and medicines that he surely is eligible for special medical care due to torture and his critical condition in the prison.
