Update: Dr. Khazali has been admitted to Ghamar Banihashem hospital affiliated with the Intelligence Ministry.
Kalameh reports Dr. Mehdi Khazali was removed from Taleghani hospital at 2:00 AM by agents and taken to an undisclosed location.
The agents taking Dr. Khazali did so without the knowledge or authorization from his physicians. Hospital personnel that witnessed this kidnapping were in shock and were not able to show any reaction to the agents.
A hospital personnel that witnessed this event told Kalameh, “Considering the dire health condition of Dr. Khazali after 43 days on a hunger strike, this action puts Dr. Khazali’s life in danger, he needs to remain under physician’s care.”
Despite the fact that Dr. Mehdi Khazali has lost a significant amount of weight and is very weak, he has refused to break his hunger strike. Hospital personnel said this veteran of Iran-Iraq war was in high spirit.
Dr. Khazali was taken to Taleghani hospital on Friday after suffering heart complications due to his prolonged hunger strike.
