Ashura detainee Peyman Karimi-Azad was transferred to the solitary confinement unit of Ward 240 from Ward 350 while he was in critical condition.
According to JARS, last night he was transferred to the solitary confinement unit of Ward 240 as punishment since the clinic personnel were angry.
Peyman has to refer to the clinic constantly due to his low blood pressure and his need for 108 unit insulin injection. Since he did not receive the necessary medical attention, he had objected to the inappropriate behavior of the clinic personnel. Consequently, a number of clinic personnel had beaten him while he was in critical condition and transferred him to solitary confinement after filing a complaint against him.
There are great concerns as to his condition since he has threatened to go on hunger strike and stop taking his medication following his transfer to solitary confinement.
He is one of the 17 prisoners of Ward 350 who had been transferred to solitary confinement a while ago after objecting to the insulting behavior of the prison authorities and the prison visit ban for some prisoners.
