Authority refusing to transfer student to prison in Tehran despite his health condition

24-year-old student, Hassan Tarlani, was sentenced by the Revolutionary Court to ten years in prison in exile and transferred to a prison in Kerman Province, where he is being held with drug-addicted prisoners. Due to the limitations in the remote prison, Tarlani has been unable to receive medical treatment he needs and has submitted numerous requests for a transfer to Tehran. Several months ago, the Intelligence Ministry promised his family that due to his medical condition, he would be transferred to Tehran Province or to the nearby province of Alborz, but the legal authorities are continuing to oppose this request.
