Dictatorship apparatchiks to Kazemeini-Boroujerdi: You must write that you are totally healthy

Subsequent to the follow-ups and persistent efforts of various human rights organizations and activists, regarding Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi’s deteriorating health and the willful lack of medical treatment, agents of the regime, rather than address the situation, have started taking underhanded and imposturous actions.
On Wednesday morning, April 30th, Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi was transferred to the Special Clerical Tribunal where once again, he was abused and pressured into responding to a recent statement issued by various human rights organizations, in claiming that he is in fact healthy and suffers from no medical conditions.
After the hearing, he experienced an asthma attack and was returned to his cell, and usual he was refused any and all medical attention.
Mr. Kazemeini-Boroujerdi who is now in the eighth year of his eleven year sentence is detained in Evin prison and due to the exceedingly unsanitary conditions in prison, as well as the continued torture sessions and horrifying solitary confinement, throughout the years, has developed many ailments and has suffered the exacerbation of other conditions that he had prior to his imprisonment. He now has full blown heart disease, severe pulmonary problems, kidney stones, and much more. 
Human Rights Activists for Democracy in Iran continue to condemn the illegal abuse of this freedom-loving cleric and call on all activists and organizations around the world to take the necessary action to intervene in his case, in order to bring about his unconditional release from prison.
