My Son’s Life Is In Danger, Says Father of Imprisoned HR Activist Hossein Ronaghi Maleki

Hossein Ronaghi Maleki

The father of imprisoned political prisoner, Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, has written a letter to Tehran’s District Attorney, explaining in detail his son’s situation .

According to reports on the Kaleme website, Hossein Ronaghi has recently encountered gastrointestinal bleeding due to the lack of proper nutrition and lack of access to his treating physicians, and is therefore unable to take needed medication for his prostate and kidney diseases.

According to previously published reports, despite Hossein’s suffering from kidney malfunction and prostate and bladder inflammation, he was ordered back to prison by the District Attorney prior to the recent presidential election.

Hossein Ronaghi Maleki was among those arrested after the 2009 disputed presidential election. He was arrested by IRGC Intelligence and tried at Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court presided by Judge Pirabbasi, and was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.

Last August, while Ronaghi was on his first medical furlough, he, his brother and his father (Hassan and Ahmad Ronaghi), along with 33 other earthquake aid workers were arrested in the Sarand earthquake relief camp in the earthquake-stricken area of Azarbaijan.

Following is the full text of the letter as provided to Kaleme published on their website today:

In the name of the Almighty

May 21, 2013

Hereby, I respectfully inform you that during my son’s surgery, the honorable IRGC agents and the prison officials were present. His surgery lasted some hours. Post-operation he went into a coma and did not come out of the coma for several days.

I extend my sincere gratitude to your excellency and all those who helped secure my son’s previous medical furlough.

Dear Sir, the last furlough request I faxed to you was on May 14, 2013. After I contacted the District Attorney’s office, I was informed my son’s furlough extension request had been denied and that he must return to prison. My son was ordered to report back to prison on May 21, 2013.

Dear Sir, my son suffers from kidney malfunction. In order to save his right kidney he must be under the constant care of a specialist. Therefore, I request of your excellency, the officials of the Islamic Republic and the official in charge of Hossein Ronaghi Maleki’s case, that the request be granted for a medical furlough in order to save his life.

As the honorable District Attorney and the officials of the Islamic Republic are well aware, the Divine law and the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran attach great value to the health of human life.

Dear Mr. District Attorney, I hereby inform you that if my son remains in prison his life will be at risk and he is in danger of losing his kidney.

Again, I urgently request that the honorable District Attorney, the prison officials and the official in charge of Hossein Ronaghi’s case immediately take legal action.

All of the medical records are at the country’s medical examiner’s office located on Beheshti street, at other medical examiner’s offices, the district attorney’s office and at Evin prison.

The honorable district attorney and the honorable Judiciary officials: My son’s life is in danger at Evin prison. On July 1 my son sent you a letter from the hospital requesting a medical furlough.

I, sayed Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki, gave my son’s letter to the deputy district attorney, Mr. Khodabakhsh.

Dear Sir, the prison’s environment and the lack of proper nutrition has been, and is harmful to the health of my son. His life is in danger.

Hereby, I request from the honorable district attorney, the official handling Hossein Ronaghi Maleki’s case at Evin and the executive director of Evin prison, that my son be granted the urgently needed medical furlough.

Furthermore, my son now also suffers from digestive problems and has been vomiting and suffering from bleeding ulcer, therefore not able to take his medications for his kidney and other conditions. As per the doctor order, all medications have been suspended. Now there is an urgent need to treat his gastrointestinal condition also.
