Ailing Baha’i student denied hospital treatment

Authorities at Rajaï Shahr Prison are refusing to hospitalize Fuad Khanjani despite the fact that the necessary approvals have been issued by legal authorities. Fuad, a Baha’i student suspended from his studies and imprisoned for his religious beliefs, suffers from a severe medical condition and intense pain, but authorities at the prison continue to prevent him being transferred to hospital on false allegations. He was sentenced to four years in prison, and his grandfather, Jamalaladin Khanjani – considered one of the leaders of the Iranian Baha’i community – is also serving a 20-year prison sentence in Rajaï Shahr Prison.
