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.
