A source close to the families of these two Christian converts has told HRANA: “Hadi Asghari and Amin Afshar Naderi, have been held in an undecided condition for more than six months, and even have not been interrogated. They have said if their situation would not be made clear they would go on hunger strike. Hadi Asghari has got infection on his both kidneys because of the cold weather. Nothing has been done so far, regarding his treatment.”
HRANA had previously reported that Mr. Asgari had been interrogated for three months in ward 209 of Evin Prison, and had been kept in solitary confinements. He had been deprived of contacting his family and informing them of his situation, for the first 47 days.
