Kobra Banazadeh Amirkhizi who is detained in Qarchak Prison in Varamin along with other female political prisoners is suffering from new problems with her eyesight and eyes because of lack of medical treatment in prison.
According to reports, specialist doctors have said that because she did not receive on-time treatment, she needs to receive long term treatment under the supervision of specialists.
Notably, the medical examiner has given her a letter saying that she is unable to tolerate detention and this letter has been submitted to the prosecutor more than 5 months ago. The prosecutor has not answered the letter and they have refused to give her a medical leave from prison.
This 56 year old political prisoner was sentenced to five years of prison by the 28th branch of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran.
