Two political prisoners are not receiving any medical attention as a means to coerce them to forgo their beliefs.

Mohammad Banazadeh Amirkhizi, a political prisoner in Rajaishahr prison in Karaj city, West of Tehran, who broke his hand while taking a patient to the infirmary has been deprived of any medical care and kept in the ward with agonizing pain. He is not allowed to seek medical care either inside the prison or in hospitals outside the prison.

Mr. Mohammad Banazadeh Amirkhizi, 63, is a well known merchant and a supporter of the PMOI. He was arrested in 2009 when the intelligence agents raided his office. He was taken to ward 209 of Evin Prison and later transferred to Karaj’s Rajaishahr Prison.

Similarly, Mr. Saleh Kohandel was arrested on charge of supporting the PMOI and is presently in prison. He is suspicious of having leukemia and has acute problem regarding his thrombocyte and his physical condition has recently deteriorated.

He has to be seen by specialists and have lab tests, but his guardsmen refuse him access to medical care to torment him to death as is their method of torturing the prisoners.
