Political prisoner goes on dry hunger strike in protest to being beaten in prison infirmary

Peiman Karimi Azad announced that he was on a dry hunger and medicine strike after being beaten by a medic in Evin Prison’s infirmary.

According to reports, this political prisoner, who was recently tried for a second time on charges of insulting the leader, was beaten by a medic for talking to a female political prisoner in the infirmary.

After filing a complaint against the medic, he was summoned to the court in Evin Prison and was faced with new charges.

This political prisoner who was arrested on December 27, 2009 went on a dry hunger and medicine strike because of the violent treatment he received and because his insulin doses were decreased. (Human Rights Activists in Iran – Jul. 11, 2011)
