Mansour Osanloo the head of Bus Workers Union, who was arrested about four and half years ago, continues to suffer from heart problems and despite his doctor’s order to undergo immediate surgery, was denied medical leave.
Osanloo’s wife talked about his urgent condition and her plea to get permission for his treatment saying, “Tehran D.A. didn’t approve his medical release as well as his treatment in the prison hospital. He is very sick and needs immediate medical attention but they are not allowing him to have any.” She furthered added that Osanloo’s family are very worried about his health condition and they said he never complains about it but his pain is very obvious and needs immediate medical attention.
