Arash Sadeghi’s Medical Dossier Missing in Evin Prison
HRANA News Agency – The doctor who examined Arash Sadeghi in prison, claimed that “all of his medical documents and records have been lost”. Mr. Sadeghi after the end of his long hunger strike is suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases of the airways (asthma), bleeding in the stomach and intestinal colitis in light of the denial of medical care. The prisoner is also prevented from meeting his wife Golrokh Irai who is held in the women’s ward of Evin prison.
According to the report of Human Rights News Agency in Iran (HRANA), a doctor went to prison for examining Arash and several other prisoners. He had visited Arash Sadeghi in a short time and asked him about the record of the endoscopic examination, echo and spirometry. He responded that he had done them previously during the strike. The Medical examiner also added that if he had done such tests already, it might be that his medical documents and records had been lost, because they were not in his medical case.
The prisoner’s medical documents and records have been lost while IRGC intelligence insists on the denial of medical care.
HRANA had reported previously that the doctor at prison clinic with an emphasis on extreme protein poverty called for serum protein injection which requires his admission in the hospital because of the risk of blood clots.
