Hamed Rouhinejad Denied Medical Care for Multiple Sclerosis

Hamed Rouhinejad is an Iranian student of philosophy who has been imprisoned since April last year. Hamed who also suffers from the terrible debilitating MS disease, was first sentenced to execution, but his sentence was later commuted to 10 years.

According to Human Rights groups in Iran, Hamed's conditions are fast deteriorating. He is detained in ward 7 of Evin prison. So far, he has been denied all medical treatment outside the prison and has not been allowed even one day temporary leave from prison. The coroner's office previously confirmed Hamed Rouhinejad's weakening condition and the fact that he will not be able to withstand such harsh prison conditions.

In a further despicable act, the prison officials have prevented Hamed's family from delivering his medicine. Latest news on Hamed Rouhinejad is that he has now lost the use of one of his arms and is even having problems with his hearing and his vision. Hamed is due to be transferred to Zanjan prison, North West of Iran, to serve the rest of his sentence, which will be even further away from his family.There just seems to be no limit to the brutality and inhumanity of Ahmadinejad's administration.
