In the past, and after the 2009 presidential election, prison officials have repeatedly ignored serious health problems of political prisoners and have denied necessary medical furlough, causing irreversible damage to health of many prisoners.
According to the Bureau of Prison’s regulations, they are responsible for the safekeeping and the life of the prisoners and should provide a safe and secure environment for them.
The Committee of the Human Rights Reporters expressed serious concern for this human rights activist, and is asking for an urgent review of her situation.

The Committee of the Human Rights Reporters warns about the consequences of holding Narges Mohamadi under the current situation in Zanjan prison and asks for her immediate and unconditional release.
