Amnesty International: Ramazan Ahmad Kamal Needs Immediate Medical Care
HRANA News Agency – Amnesty International in a statement announced that Ramazan Ahmad Kamal, Kurdish Syrian prisoner needs surgery, and called for imminent consideration of the condition of this Syrian prisoner of Rajaei Shahr prison of Karaj.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), in this statement which was published on January 26, it is stated, “He is in need of surgical treatment for an infection in his shoulder, which has resulted in partial paralysis of his arm. The infection appears to be the outcome of poor post-operative care following earlier surgical treatment inside prison.”
Amnesty International also mentioned that Ramazan Ahmad Kamal was beaten during his transfer to hospital on December 30, and after two weeks, sent back to prison without proper treatment.
According to HRANA, he was transferred to hospital on Wednesday December 30, while he was unconscious. After he woke up, he told that he had been beaten by the wardens and could not remember anything after that.
Keyvan Samimi, former political prisoner has shared the story with HRANA in a phone interview.
Ramazan Ahmad Kamal along with three other PKK memebrs who mistakenly had entered to Iranian territories was arrested in 2008.
He was arrested while he was running toward Iraqi borders and was shot in belly, left shoulder and thigh. After 7 years bullets are still in his body. Due to lack of proper medical treatment the muscle of his hand is severely wreaked and infected.
The Kurdish prisoner was charged in the revolutionary court of Khoy and sentenced to death, but the supreme court reduced the sentence to 10 years in prison.
This prisoner is currently serving his 8th year, in hall number 12 of Rajaei Shahr prison.
