Tabriz Central Prison

HRANA News Agency – Since more than a month and a half ago, the diet which “includes cheese for breakfast, only rice for lunch, soup for dinner” has been served in Tabriz prison. This meal plan has been served under the pretext of repairing the kitchen by officials of the prison while most inmates could not afford to buy food from the prison shop and were malnourished. On the other hand, according to the families of the prisoners, the prisoners were prevented from being sent to the clinic with intestinal problems.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), since more than a month and a half ago, the diet which “includes cheese for breakfast, only rice for lunch, soup for dinner” has been served in Tabriz prison.

One of the family members of these prisoners told HRANA’s reporter, “Imagine the prisoners should eat the same way for a month and a half. Some prisoners have money and can buy from the store, but what could the rest of the prisoners do?”

According to another member of the families of prisoners from Tabriz, a majority of prisoners could not afford to buy food from the prison shop for long-term.

The source further added: “our prisoner suffers from malnourishment, his stomach does not accept the poor quality food of the prison and eats up any food, and on the other hand he was not send to the infirmary. We do not know to whom we should refer.”
