Report on the Health Conditions of Political Prisoner Majid Assadi

By INU Staff

INU - Majid Assadi, political prisoner in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj city, is suffering from several diseases, including endocrinology, and digestive, vision and spine problems.

The prison's physicians have prescribed him special medical treatment in the hospital in specified periods, but the prison’s officials have caused obstructions and prevented him from going to the hospital. If this condition and inattention of the prison officials to his problems persist, Assadi risks turning blind.

Despite these problems and Assadi's critical need for medical care, and also in spite of the continued pursuit by Assadi and his family, prison authorities continue to prevent him from going to the medical centers outside of the prison.

Majid Assadi was arrested on January 19, 2017 in his family home by the Iranian regime's intelligence (MOIS) agents and was taken to Ward 209 of Evin Prison. In December 2018, he was charged with “acting against national security and propaganda against the regime” and was condemned to six years in Jail by the 26th branch of the revolutionary court of Tehran.
