Political prisoners suffering from worsening physical conditions in Iran

Several political prisoners in Iran saw their physical conditions worsen considerably on Friday, reports indicated.

The imprisoned leader of Tehran’s Bus Union suffered a heart attack on Friday, according to reports, and has gone into a coma. The Iranian regime’s agents in prison only transferred him out of the cell after cellmates protested.

Separately, the physical condition of another political prisoner on hunger strike, Ali Ahmad Soleiman, has deteriorated significantly. He is now reported to be unconscious.

Mr. Soleiman has reportedly been on hunger strike for the past 40 days initially in protest to the transfer of his cellmate Hossein Khezri to the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) and later in protest to his execution by the regime.
