Female political prisoner taken to hospital in very critical condition after being denied months of medical attention

According to reports, political prisoner Zahra Jabari was taken to a hospital in Tehran in very critical condition.

On Monday, March 21, this political prisoner’s health became very critical and she went into a coma. According to eyewitnesses, when being transferred to the hospital, it seemed that her brain was not functioning and only her heart was beating. There are unconfirmed reports that this political prisoner might have suffered a brain death.

Jabari has been suffering from serious heart problems and severe rheumatism for months but has been denied medical treatment on the orders of agents of the Intelligence Agency and Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolat Abadi. She was taken to the hospital some time before this after her health deteriorated but intelligence agents and the Tehran Prosecutor prevented her treatment and brought her back to prison.

One of the inhumane methods carried out on political prisoners on orders of Sadeq Larijani, the head of the Judiciary and the Ministry of Intelligence is denying them treatment and eventually torturing them to death in this way. (Human Right and Democracy Activists in Iran – Mar. 23, 2011)
