It has become clear that the constant stomach pains of Political prisoner Mohsen Dokmehchi, who has been in a critical condition from some time ago and was accused of ‘faking his illness’ by prison officials, is actually a kind of cancer.
The lack of attention and negligence of Evin Prison officials has caused hi illness to deteriorate. Dokmeh Chi who is a Tehran Bazaar merchant has been detained for more than 15 months for giving financial assistance to the families of political prisoners.
According to reports, he was suffering from constant pain for several months but prison officials refused to give him medical attention or see to his problems and transfer him to a hospital, until his condition became very critical. Because of his late transfer to the hospital, doctors have said that his cancer has advanced and that there was no hope in treating him.
According to this report, prison officials still refuse to give him a short furlough and he was once again transferred to prison.
