HRANA News Agency – Morteza Moradpour and Rasoul Razavi, political prisoners in central prison of Tabriz who had been deported to central prison of Karaj long ago, were transferred to Tabriz prison on December 7.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), the two exiled political prisoners in central prison of Karaj, were transferred to Tabriz prison on December 7.

Mr. Razavi and Moradpour were deported to central prison of Karaj following their hunger strike in Tabriz prison.

Rasoul Razavi wrote a letter on the 44th day of the strike, and referred to the favorable promise of judicial authorities and ended his hunger strike on November 15, 2016.

But Morteza Moradpour continued his hunger strike and was kept in poor conditions in solitary confinement in hall 12 of the central prison of Karaj before the transfer.

Fardin Moradpour told HRANA’s reporter about the physical condition of his brother in solitary confinement, “on December 1, Morteza called me. He called for the first time after his transfer to the prison of Karaj, his voice shows that he was too weak. He complained about the treatment of prison authorities and said that there were no political prisoners there, so they did not know how to behave with political prisoners.”

Remarkably, on December 3 civil activists signed and sent a letter to the Chief Justice of East Azerbaijan province, while noting the details of the case and the illegal imprisonment of “Morteza Moradpour” compared to his physical condition and health and long-term consequences of hunger strike and expressed their concern and stressed the role of the judiciary in this matter.

Jafar Afsharnia lawyer of Morteza Moradpour, on November 25, in an open letter addressed the details of the case of the prisoner on hunger strike.
