The human rights situation in Iran is deteriorating and there is a grave concern for the many political prisoners that are locked up around the country. Many political activists have been arrested and sentenced to long prison terms because of their activities. Once in jail, they are denied a proper trial and are very badly mistreated. Some are denied medical attention, some are beaten, others undergo tough physical and psychological abuse. Many face all of the above.

The case of 37-year-old political prisoner Majid Assadi has been brought to attention in recent weeks. Assadi is suffering from a number of serious medical issues, some of which are related to a pre-existing condition that should be monitored very carefully and regularly by medical professionals. He suffers from a rheumatism syndrome named Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) that causes spine pain, inflammation in his vision network, ulcers and digestive problems. His health is deteriorating because he has not been given the necessary medical attention and treatment.
