Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein
Mr. High Commissioner,
I am writing to request your urgent attention to the plight of Iranian prisoners of conscience and political prisoners, and in particular prisoners who are denied proper medical treatment.
Before offering information on sick prisoners, I may recall briefly some of the relevant UN rules as well as prison rules in Iran.
