NCRI - Lack of access to medical care and prison officials’ refusal to transfer Mohammad Reza Seifzadeh to a medical center has left him facing dire physical conditions, reports indicate.
Seifzadeh, 50, was arrested in 2012 on charges of measures against national security and contacts with the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He was transferred to ward 209 of Tehran’s Evin Prison and thus sentenced to 10 years behind bars in exile in Barazjan Prison. He was also placed jailed as a political prisoner during the 1980s and spent four years behind bars. He has a 14-year-old child.
During the past two years no family member of this political prisoner has been permitted to visit him in prison.
