HRANA News Agency – On Saturday night, October 1, 2011, Ayatollah Boroujerdi visited the prison clinic in Evin because of heart problems, but prison officials refused to provide medical care for him. Ayatollah Hossein Kazemeyni Boroujerdi is a prisoner of conscience whose pre-existing medical conditions have deteriorated since his arrest on October 8, 2006.
According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), last night, Ayatollah Boroujerdi complaining of chest pain visited the clinic in Evin Prison to seek medical care. The medical staff didn’t admit him into the clinic and asked for his immediate transfer to a hospital outside the prison. However, the prison officials have refused to comply with this request.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi suffers from heart problems and lacks the necessary balance to walk independently due to swelling of both feet.
