Mehdi Mohammadi, in a meeting with his sister on Sunday July 22nd, 2018, regarding the latest update of Narges Mohammadi said, “She was very weak and thin, pale and, of course, angry, saying that before coming to this visit, the clinic called and said the Prisoner’s prosecutor did not agree to my doctor’s appointment and suggested the treatment be done by prison doctors in prison clinic. Before the meeting, two of the Nerges’ cell mate said when Narges came back from clinic, she was nauseated and vomiting, and she has not had any food for almost two days and taken to clinic where she was given two B-6 shots. “
What you read is the narration “Mehdi Mohammadi” from the last visit with his sister “Narges Mohammadi” that was published on the website on Wednesday, July 25th, 2018.
It is worth mentioning that Narges Mohammadi’s brother expressed his concern after meeting with his sister.
Mehdi Mohammadi said during Narges hospitalization for her gallbladder operation and having a history of amniotic fluid in her lungs, Narges was banned from any visitations or phone calls. After the surgery, they did not even allow my old and sick mother and father and her young child hear her voice.
Narges was admitted to a double room, but with prosecutor’s office direct contact with the head of the hospital, she was transferred to a single room and was kept in isolation. On the second day of the hospitalization due to ill-treatment and violent encounters with one of the security guards, Narges suffered a nervous attack and which increased her blood pressure and with the fear of seizure they performed an electroencephalogram on her. However, Narges suffered psychological stress and terrible physical pain, but we preferred to stay silent until her surgery.
Unfortunately, one day after the operation (on day one, Narges was under anesthesia, first time for ½ hour and second time for 2 and ½ hours. Due to the of the pressure of the prison officials, the health clinic wanted Narges to return to the jail quickly and continue the treatment through case dispatch. One day later, the prosecutor’s office agent along with the medical examiner and Jafari’s lawyer went to the hospital.
This is when, two physicians insisted on continuing hospitalization, but for security reasons and pressure, Narges was returned to prison, hoping that minimum treatment should be followed with case dispatches.
The order of Narges admission and surgery was given to Evin Prison and Prosecutor’s Office on January 2017, and again on March 2017, but surgery was carried out in June 2018, while my sister suffered from pain for hours.
As Narges’s brother, I call on the Prosecutor to allow temporary vacation from prison, and let her medical dispatches to be disrupted at the last minute to prevent a bad event
Earlier, Taqhi Rahmani, Mrs. Mohammadi’s husband and a journalist, on Saturday, June 30th, 2018, wrote on his Facebook page about his wife’s latest condition: “Narges Mohammadi needs treatment. Since last night, Narges has been suffering from severe pain with kidney stones and gallbladder problems. Since 2016, although the doctor has repeatedly advised on attention to her care and her to be hospitalized, she was neglected by the authorities.
Narges Mohammadi is a prisoner but a prisoner with a variety of deprivations.
On May 2016, Narges Mohammadi was sentenced to 16 years imprisonment by the Revolutionary Court of Tehran. Ten years of sentence was solely because of her activity in the Step-by-Step Campaign for the Abolition of the Death Penalty. The court called her cooperation with the peaceful campaign as a “creating a society aimed at undermining the security of the country”.
Narges Mohammadi stated that during the trial, the judge had an offensive and hostile attitude toward her and clearly and openly defended the charges brought against her by the officials of the Ministry of Intelligence. The human rights activist has repeatedly argued that the judge has accused her of trying to change divine rules through her activities against the death penalty.
Other 6 years of Narges Mohammadi sentence is for “gathering and colluding against national security” and “using propaganda against the regime”, which was also the basis of her peaceful human rights activities.
Among Ms. Mohammadi activities, which led to her conviction was an interview with the media about human rights abuses, participation in peaceful gatherings in front of the prison in support of the families of prisoners sentenced to death, connection with other human rights activists including Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi, participation in the peaceful protests against acid attack and meeting with Catherine Ashton in 2013. Based on all these alleged crimes, Branch 36 of the Tehran Court of Appeals upheld Narges Mohammadi’s verdict of 16-year prison sentence in October 2016.
In May 2017, the request to reinstate her trial was rejected by the Supreme Court.
