Iranian political prisoner Hassan Sadeghi has been banned from visiting his wife Fatemeh Mosanna, who is also a political prisoner because he refused to wear a prison uniform or have cuffs on his hands and feet during his transfer from Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj.

This meant that Amin Vaziri, the presiding judicial official in Rajai Shahr Prison, ordered that the visit, the first in several months, be canceled. (Since being promoted, Vaziri has made it obligatory for prisoners to wear a uniform and hand and feet cuffs during transfers knowing that the political prisoners will resist.)
