Upon the announcement of the officials in the dispensary of Central Prison in Orumieh his dead body was referred to Forensic Medical for certification of death process cycle.
Deprivation of prisoners’s treatment right in Iran, is one of many instances of Human Rights violation, which is repeatedly noted by Special Rapporteurs on Human Rights in Iran.
Prisoners jailed in Iran prisons face an expanded range of Human Rights violations. The violations are evidently conspicuous on one hand in their limitations on a fair trial emphasized in Article 10 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and on another hand in various kinds of diseases and damages threatening them from the beginning of their imprisonment and also on the other hand in continuous cases filed against these prisoners.
The individuals’s accessibility to medicine and health care facilities is one of the instances accentuated in Article 25 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) that spotlights the persons to deserve the social rights accessibility such as health, treatment, food, housing and social providing facilities during their unemployment, illness period, deformity and handicap, widowhood, oldness or any other situation in which the persons are incapable to earn and lead a respectable living, however the wrathful misbehavior by Security and Judicial Organizations towards these Iranian citizens and filing accusations against their requests is an obvious example of Human Rights violation in Iran.
