Mohammad Nazari, a political prisoner detained in Urmia Prison, who during his term of imprisonment in Rajaei-shahr of Karaj, and the Urmia Prison has spent more than 25 years imprisonment without any leave, has been suffering from various illnesses following frequent strikes, such as gastric malignant tumor, which the judiciary has opposed the deportation of the old prisoner for treatment outside the prison and is still suffering from the disease. He is one of the most helpless and alone prisoners in Iran.
According to Human Rights of Kurdistan of Iran; Saturday, 2019 July 13, “Mohammad Hoseyn Aghasi”, Mohammad Nazari’s lawyer, has announced that a tumor has been found in my client’s stomach but despite his and his client’s requests for transferring to the hospital and treatment, it is still prevented from conducting Nazari’s transfer who is held in central prison of Urmia and sentenced to life imprisonment.
As Aghasi said, Nazari was supposed to be transferred to a hospital on Monday, 2019 July 8, to determine the type of tumor, but this did not happened. He said the situation of his client is extremely disturbing.
This lawyer also said: «Mohammad Nazari, sience the arrestment date (1994 May 30) until now which is 25 years imprisonment, hasn’t leave the prison even for a day, while having the right to leave is a right for prisoners in Iran and is in accordance with the Executive Order of the Prisons Organization and the Educational Measures.
Mohammad Nazari was born in 1971 from Shahin Dej (a city of West Azerbaijan province) and arrested in Bukan city by the IRGC forces when he was 23, and he was charged with “membership in the Democratic Party of Kurdistan” and sentenced to death at first. Six months later, his case was sent to Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court of Urmia, chaired by Judge “Jalilzadeh”. In this court he was again judged with the same charges and sentenced to death.
During 24 years in prison, Mohammad Nazari suffered from cervical disc, heart disease and depression, and none of them treated and he isn’t in a proper condition. He is ill and has many physical illnesses besides psychological problems. Loss of teeth is just one of his problems, which unfortunately has worsened due to not treating and preventing him from sending him to a specialist. He is suffering from cervical disc and suddenly loses his control of his legs and hands but no one does anything for him. In the last 24 years, he has only eaten prison’s food and there is nobody to deposit money in his prison card to buy fruit and meat. Technically, he is deprived of all human rights enshrined in the law.
