Iran: Save lives of two political prisoners on hunger strike
The Iranian Resistance calls for lives of Messrs. Afshin Baymany and
Arjang Davoodi, political prisoners on hunger strike since 21 days ago in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison, to be saved. They have gone on hunger strike in protest to their transfer to ordinary prisoners’ ward. Mr. Argjang Davoudi, 62, suffers of acute renal problem. His condition markedly deteriorated on December 26 and he was transferred to a hospital outside prison. Only a few days prior, he had been taken to the hospital as his condition turned critical, but the henchmen returned him back to the prison before he had received any medical treatment.
Mr. Afshin Baimani with severe heart ailment is now in critical condition due to three weeks of hunger strike. His daughter and wife have also gone on hunger strike in protest to his transfer to ordinary prisoners’ ward. It is 16 years now that he is languishing in the medieval prisons of the Iranian regime facing all kinds of pressures.
