NCRI - According to reports, Iranian regime officials prevented treatment of political prisoner Lavin Karimi in Hamedan prison. This university student, who has developed stomach problems due to severe torture inflicted on her during interrogation, is now suffering from stomach bleeding. Prison doctors have emphasized that she has to receive medical treatment immediately but one of the torturers, called Rajabi, has told Lavin that the Intelligence Ministry does not allow her out of prison and the prison cannot do anything.

The political prisoner, Lavin Karim, 26, a university student in bachelor of management, was arrested on August 15, 2015 in her father’s home in the city of Saghez (Northwest Iran) and sentenced to five and half years in prison. But following objection by her lawyer, the verdict was reduced by the regime’s appeal court to three years imprisonment and exile to Hamadan prison.
