44 Political Prisoners Protested Transfer Of Dr. Ali Nazari On A Stretcher From Evin To Zabol Prison

44 political prisoners incarcerated in Ward 350 of Evin prison, in a letter protested the transfer of their cellmate Dr. Ali Nazeri from Evin prison to Zabol prison (S.E. Iran), saying the responsibility for any ill effect happening to Dr. Nazeri lies with the Judicial authorities.

Kaleme website had reported that Dr. Ali Nazeri an environmental and human rights activist who was re-arrested about 20 days ago at his dental practice, was transferred from Evin to Zabol prison on Tuesday.

Dr. Ali Nazari was initially arrested June 2010 for participating in the Green Movement activities. He was tried and convicted in Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court, presided by Judge Pirabbasi, on the charge of propaganda against the system and was given an unjust sentence of one year imprisonment to be served in the city of Zabol plus 10 years forced exile in the same city.

HRANA also reports that 6 of the people protesting the transfer of Dr. Nazari have now been moved to solitary confinement.

Following is the text of the protest letter written by 44 of Dr. Nazari’s prison mates:

In the name of God,

On Tuesday July 16, 2013, by the order of Judicial authorities, Dr. Ali Nazari was transferred from Evin Ward 350 to Zabol. Dr. Nazari was only guilty of seeking freedom, defending human rights and defending the rights of the people in the Green Movement.

We wish the authorities that, by their acts are themselves responsible for our country’s current plight, and must have seen the people’s reactions to their deeds, both before and after the election, would, rather than continuing the past approach and continue to hold spite against the people, would heed the people’s demands and opinions, and compensate for their past actions.

We still hold hope that they reconsider their actions and join the people in their demands, for this is not only for the good of the country but is also to their own benefit.

Dr. Nazeri, one of Ward 350 political prisoners, suffers from serious heart disease and high blood pressure and because of his unstable situation and the condition of his health he must be monitored by a physician daily.

He was quite ill at the time of transfer and was irresponsibly moved out of Ward 350 to an ambulance on a stretcher.

We, prison mates of Dr. Nazeri, along with requesting his return back to Ward 350, hold the Judicial authorities responsible for any ill effect this transfer may have on Dr. Nazari.
