HRANA News Agency – Sohail Babadi, prisoner in Rajai Shahr prison, after more than 40 months of detention and preliminary court verdict, is still in an uncertain condition and waiting for the final decision, although he is suffering from physical problems.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), Sohail Babadi, political prisoner, is still living in an indeterminate state while the decision of the Court of Appeal has not been communicated to him after more of 40 months under detention and he is deprived of medical care.
The wife of this political- conscience prisoner by noting that his case has not been determined by the Court of Appeal yet, and his status remains undecided, told HRANA’s reporter, “My husband has got kidney problems and because the initial order is not a final judgment, they do not allow him to go on leave or be transferred to a hospital.”
Sohail Babadi’s wife also said that in the current state of her husband he tries to control and solve his medical problems with little facilities in the clinic of Rajai Shahr prison.
Sohail Babadi, political prisoner in Rjai Shahr prison, who had been sentenced to 5 years imprisonment on charges of blasphemy, was sentenced to another 7 years imprisonment recently by a verdict on charges of gathering and collusion against national security and insulting the supreme leader.
Babadi was arrested on 21 May 2012, for writing satirical pieces on the Facebook page “Campaign for reminding Imam Naqi to the Shiites”. Babadi, who was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment by the criminal court, and has another open case with charges of gathering and collusion and propaganda against the regime in Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court, formerly in a letter which was publicized by HRANA, in September 2012, had exposed the beating and sexual and family allegations by his interrogators to put pressure on him to confess. He had written that because of the pressures and threats her wife miscarried a 4 months baby. Babadi had written in his letter in this regard: “The interrogator came to me after hearing this news during our phone call, (my wife’s phone tapping by intelligence) while expressing his happiness and said; ‘definitely it was a bastard child that had this fate.’”
