Ali Salari Camp Liberty resident lost his life due to medical blockade of the campPublished by International Liberty on February 5, 2015
On Wednesday morning, 4 February, Ali Salari lost his life in Camp Liberty due to lack of free access to medical treatment. He is the 24th resident who was tormented to death by the anti-human medical blockade imposed on camps Ashraf and Liberty. He was suffering from cancer but was denied proper treatment.
Since he was diagnosed with cancer the representatives of Camp Liberty had repeatedly requested his immediate transfer out of Iraq for treatment. As Ali’s health deteriorated, Camp Liberty’s legal advisor once again wrote to UN officials on February 3: “I would like to draw your attention to Mr. Ali Salari’s case who is suffering from Multiple Myeloma. We are requiring expediting his transfer.”
We remind UN and US officials of their responsibilities and repeated and written commitments regarding the security and wellbeing of Camp Liberty residents and call for immediate action to lift this anti-human siege.
