March 13, 2011

According to reports, interrogators of the Intelligence Agency are preventing the medical treatment of jailed student Ali Ajami who is suffering from severe sinusitis. 
This Tehran University law student was arrested during the post-election protests after intelligence agents raided his home. He is currently detained in complete isolation in Hall 12 Cellblock 4 in the Gohardasht Prison in Karaj. He has been suffering from a severe case of sinusitis for several weeks and has severe pain in his face, eyes and is suffering from fever and shakes. Despite his severe pain, he has been denied medical attention. 
Ajami has also been banned from family visit and making phone calls to his family. His family is extremely worried because of their lack of information regarding his condition. 
Notably, Ajami was arrested on February 9, 2010 in his father’s home in Sabzevar in Mashhad and was taken to the Mashhad Intelligence Agency where he was subjected to severe physical and mental torture. He was then transferred to cellblock 209 in Evin Prison and was kept in a state or limbo for months in cellblock 350. After eight months, he was sentenced to four years of prison to be served in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj by the 15th branch of the Revolutionary Court headed by (the notorious judge) Salavati. This Tehran University student was charged with propagating against the government and acting against national security. His four year prison term was lowered to 2 years of prison by the 54th branch of the court of review. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran – Mar. 8, 2011)
