As a member of Amnesty International I want to write to you about Ayatollah Seyyed Hossein Kazemeyni Boroujerdi, an Iranian Muslim cleric who advocates the separation of religion and government. He has been in the Central Yazd prison, his health has been seriously deteriorated and he is refused health service inside of prison, furthermore he has a bone disease that needs medical attention and X-ray but Mr. Boroujerdi is not allowed permission to leave the prison to get medical attention, I would respectfully ask you to grant him permission to get medical attention as his imprisonment terms goes against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Another Political Prisoner named Abbas Khorsandi who received an eight year prison sentence was confirmed by Branch 36 of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court. Mr. Khorsandi, a political activist charged with associating with and organizing illegal gatherings for the Democratic Party of Iran, was originally given eight years imprisonment by Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court, headed by judge Salavati. Mr. Khorsandi had been in jail for eleven months prior to the new judgment back in 7th of august 2008, however due to continuous torture and beatings his health has been deteriorating and he as well has been denied medical care. He is refused medical attention. I respectfully ask you to grant his freedom and medical attention and stop his torturing.
Moreover another dissident of the Islamic republic of Iran by the name of Behrooz Javid Tehrani a former student activist who has been facing prison for since 1999 who is imprisoned in the ill-famed Rejay Shahr prison in Karaj outside of Tehran is being tortured and his family outside of prison is being harassed and fraught. He is beaten on a daily basis and threats to his sister and other family members are used to further inflict physiological torture to him. He alongside several other political prisoners in Iran are being refused to medical attention. Mr. Javid Tehrani is one of the last survivors of 18 tir Student demonstration in Iran. I respectfully ask you to grant his freedom and stop his tortures.
