Reports indicate that political prisoner Zahra Jabbari, has fallen in to a coma due to the lack of medical care, and is on the verge of death.
Ms. Jabbari, 37, who is currently imprisoned in Evin, has been suffering from severe heart disease. Since Saturday, the clerical regime had been denying her proper medical treatment, and delayed her transfer to the hospital, jeopardizing her life.
Jabbari, a mother of a four year old infant, was arrested in the Persian month 27th of Shahrivar 88, on the sole charge of having her two brothers and a sister in Camp Ashraf, Iraq. While imprisoned she has been faced with severe pressure and torture.
Zahra Jabbari protested her conditions in her so called trial, and detailed her brutal treatment, including the pulling of her toe nails. Her defiance has earned her increased ire by the regime. As a result the regime has tried to break her by denying her treatment for her her severe rheumatic heart disease as a method of torture. She had been suffering from acute heart disease and the denial of treatment has caused her illness to escalate and paralyzed her from movement for months.
