Kasra Nouri, in Critical Condition; The Life of Gonabadi Dervishes Is at Risk!







Dervish rights activist, Kasra Nouri has reached on 48th day of hunger strike while is suffering with the more effects of his hunger strike.

His health condition is reported dire so that Adel Abad prison infirmary doctor had to go at green section for a quick check-up and prescribing.

Prison infirmary doctor examined the half-dead body of this prisoner of conscience who was not able even to move due to severe abdominal pain.

It should be reminded that, on 15th of Bahman 1391(Feb 3, 2013) despite the poor physical conditions of two dervishes, Kasra Nouri and Saleh Moradi, who are on hunger strike , the security forces and prison authorities forced them to sign a letter stating that they have good physical health and they do not need any medical treatment and health care!

According to reports, the families of jailed dervishes after visited them in Adel Abad prison during the last few days expressed grave concern over signs of deteriorating physical health of them including vision loss, kidney failure in addition to weakness, weight loss and dizziness.

These two Gonabadi dervishes who are behind bars for more than 18 months in Shiraz’s Adel Abad prison , lunched the hunger strike to protest illegal transfer of seven Gonabadi dervishes’s lawyers and Majzooban Noor website managers to solitary confinement of Evin prison on 27th of Dey 1391 ( Jan 15, 2013). Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri by expressing concern about dir health of all jailed Dervish lawyers especially Hamid Moradi and Mostafa Daneshjou, required prison officials to transfer back seven Gonabadi dervishes’s lawyers to the general ward of Evin Prison but unfortunately their request has not been answered yet and the detained lawyers of the Gonabadi dervishes are being held in solitary confinement of Ward 209 for more than 48 days.

Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri are currently in prison, on charges of “Propaganda against the regime”, “Acting against national security”, “Deviant group (Majzooban Noor) membership” and “Interviews with foreign media, Radio Farda”, but they have not yet received a definitive sentence till now. It seems that, after 18 months, their case is under investigation in Shiraz’s Revolutionary Court.

We note in this regard that although they have been in detention more than the serving a period of time which would equate to their sentence, therefore now their detention is absolutely unlawful.
