Saeid-HossainzadehThe Civil Rights Activist, Saeid Husseinzadeh who is suffering from dystonia and palpitations was transferred to the clinic of the prison on Saturday, on Saturday. After the medical examinations, he was told by the physician that due to a-rhythmic heart he needed to be transferred to a hospital outside the prison.

In his previous transfer to the hospital on December 16, 2015, he was sent back to prison without any medical treatments. His lawyer is still unable to review his case.

Mr Husseinzadeh went on hunger strike to protest against his conditions in prison. He wrote in a letter that he was suffering from different diseases like rheumatism, dyspnoea, heart problems, ulcer and infection. He added that sabotage and unusual behaviour in the process caused deterioration of his physical condition.

Physicians informed him that his diseases would progress if being ignored and not treated properly.
Saeid Husseinzadeh was arrested in October 2014 and transferred to ward 2-A in Evin prison which is known as the revolutionary guard’s ward.

He was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment on charges of propaganda against the regime and insulting the supreme leader.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
