Political prisoner Zeynab Jalalian is spending the fifteenth year of her life sentence in exile, in Yazd Prison. During this period, she did not have any furlough and was denied medical treatment despite suffering from several diseases.
An informed source told HRANA, “despite the recommendation of physicians, prison officials refuse to dispatch Jalalian to a hospital outside the prison and her treatment is restricted to non-specialist examinations in the infirmary.”

Zeynab Jalalian went on hunger strike several times. During the detention, she was tortured, beaten, and received rape threats.
