Rasoul Razavi Transferred to an Unknown Location on the 19th Day of Hunger Strike
HRANA News Agency – Rasoul Razavi, imprisoned Turkish (Azeri) activist in Tabriz prison was transferred to an unknown location on the nineteenth day of hunger strike. The situation of the prisoner after the transfer is not known.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), at 10:30am on Monday, June 6, 2016, Rasoul Razavi imprisoned Turkish (Azeri) activist in Tabriz prison was transferred to an unknown location on the nineteenth day of hunger strike. The situation of the prisoner after the transfer is not known.
He protested against the verdict of 6 months imprisonment which had been paroled previously and was implemented against him again. He also protests against the uncertainty about another case which was opened due to being arrested last year.
A source close to the Razavi family said about the general condition of the prisoner to HRANA’s reporter: “On the eighteenth day of hunger strike his physical condition is so severe that he lost the ability to walk and while talking on the phone with his family, he could not say the words properly and even lost the power to make meaningful sentences.”
Remarkably the prisoner announced that the end of the hunger strike is a matter of canceling the verdict by branches 2 and 3 of the Revolutionary Court in Tabriz and having a quite open and fair retrial.
In 2015, judge Bagherpour head of branch 3 of the Revolutionary Court in Tabriz sentenced Rasoul Razavi to one year in prison on charge of propaganda against the regime. The six-month suspended sentence was also then carried on.
