Women’s Rights Activist Prisoner, Saba Kord Afshari, denied medical care in Evin PrisonPublished by Ali on October 14, 2020
International Liberty Association: Women’s rights prisoner Saba Kord Afshari has not yet received proper medical care and treatment in Evin Prison, two weeks after injury to her ankle.
Saba Kord Afshari hurt her ankle two weeks ago. As she was no longer able to walk without a walking stick, she personally opened her cast, on Wednesday, 14 October 2020. But she saw that her ankle is badly swollen and bruised.
Her fellow inmates took her to the clinic and the staff intended to transfer her to a civic hospital around noon. But, this is the worst timing for sending any patient to hospital.
So, young activist, Saba Kord Afshari protested and refused to go to hospital in lunch time, avoiding a useless trip to a hospital filled with C0VID-19 patients.
Saba Kord Afshari also suffers from various gastrointestinal complications as well as stomach ulcer.
ILA: The young women’s rights activist was sent to Taleghani Hospital in Tehran but since she did not have money on her to pay for the expenses, she was returned to prison without any treatment On 19 September.
