Iran Protests
 
 

NCRI - According to the news, the political prisoner, Omar Farhang, went on a hunger strike on April 16th, in Ardabil Prison to protest against the unbearable pressures and the lack of medical care in the prison.

The family of this political prisoner lives in Urmia (northwest of Iran). He and his family have repeatedly requested of the Judiciary and the criminal warden to transfer him to the hospital, but the authorities did not pay attention to these demands.

Omar Farhang was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment and was transferred to Ardabil Central Prison. He has served 9 years of his sentence so far.

The political prisoner has had tumors in the neck and throat for three years. Although the doctors diagnosed the need for an immediate surgery, the prison authorities and the Judiciary have done nothing for him during the last three years.
