Jailed Iranian human rights activist Nargess Mohammadi is challenging her “illegal” transfer to Zanjan Prison and, in a letter to the Tehran prosecutor, she writes that this treatment is in effect a sentence of “gradual death.”
Nargess Mohmmadi has been sentenced to six years in jail for “propaganda against the regime.” She is one of many members of the Human Rights Defender Centre of Iran that have been targeted by severe government persecution after the election protests of 2009.
In her letter, Mohammadi reminds the prosecutor that she is a resident of Tehran, adding that due to her health complications she needs to visit her team of healthcare providers in Tehran on a regular basis.
Taghi Rahmani, Mohammadi’s husband, reports that his wife has been suffering from muscle paralysis and is no longer able to carry out her personal daily needs without assistance.
Rahmani, who is currently residing in France, told Persian BBC that Mohammadi was brought in in a wheelchair during her last visit with her family, and her physical condition in jail is critical.
