HRANA News Agency – Mohammad Jarahi, labour activist and trade union member who is kept in Tabriz prison, is not in a fine health condition, and has been deprived of proper medical treatment.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), physicians of Tabriz prison’s clinic are evading from treatment of Mohammad Jarahi who is suffering from high blood pressure, high blood sugar, blood lipids, and neck problem. Despite the progress of his diseases, he has not been transferred to the hospital for examinations and tests.
A close source to this prisoner told HRANA’s report, “Mr. Jarahi is suffering from high blood pressure, high blood sugar level, high lipids and neck problem, but every time when he visited the prison clinic, he just received few tablets which did not have any effect on his condition”.
