He has also been prohibited from receiving any legal representation.
Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi has suffered from various diseases such as heart disease, respiratory, and also severe osteoporosis due to deprivation from health care, proper food while he has been under torture constantly.   Despite his ongoing ailments, so far no effective action has been taken to treat his condition by the prison authorities.  His family continues to express their distress and have repeatedly called for the United Nations to send an independent physician to examine and treat him.
In addition, Mr Boroujerdi 's phone calls was strictly limited after he was transferred from solitary confinement to the Special Clerical ward of Evin prison  (ward 325). He rarely can have a phone conversation with his family and this is kind of harassment and torture for him.
