HRANA – Majid Tavakoli, renowned student activist is suffering from a severe case of abdominal bleeding at Evin prison. Tavakoli’s physical condition is rapidly deteriorating and he has not been taken to the hospital by prison officials as of yet.According to reports by HRANA, Tavakoli who was recently transferred to ward 350 at Evin, a ward void of medical facilities, was suffering from extreme cough that lead to an abdominal bleeding. In the past week, Tavakoli has also suffered from continuous nose bleeds ignored by prison officials, despite concerns raised by other prison mates. During a short interview with HRANA, Ali Tavakoli announced that his brother’s physical condition is dire and stems from a lung infection that began as a result of his dry hunger strike and the difficult conditions while he was in the solitary confinement in Evin’s ward 240. Based on a very short 30 second phone conversation with her son, Tavakoli’s mother also described his condition as dire and expressed much concern for his well being. Majid informed her during this last phone conversation that it is very probable that he will not be able to make any phone contact for the foreseeable future. It is highly likely that Tavakoli’s condition was aggravated as a result of the current construction efforts and over crowding in ward 350, leading to prisoners sleeping in corridors. In addition the lack of proper and timely medical treatment, the poor quality and insufficient amount of food, and the temporary shutting off of gas and water have lead to extreme conditions and further distress of the prisoners held in this ward. It is worth mentioning that in the past week there have also been reports by various news agencies that the prisoners in ward 350 have been forced into labor as a result of the construction efforts. Majid Tavakoli, a former student at Amir Kabir University in Tehran was arrested and sentenced to 8 1/2 years incarceration and has been in prison since his arrest on December 7th, 2009.
