Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA)- There has been no news on Ayatollah Boroujerdi and six of his supporters for 20 days now. The supporters were arrested on November 8, 2010 and transferred to an undisclosed location. [All six] support Boroujerdi’s views on separation of religion and state. [Boroujerdi was arrested on October 8, 2006]
Based on the information obtained by HRANA, no information is available on the whereabouts and [conditions] of these prisoners of conscience.
Ayatollah Boroujerdi is a jailed secular cleric who, according to reports, was in a critical physical state due to suspicious injections that left parts of his body paralyzed. He also lost much of his eyesight to the point that he was not able to distinguish between [nearby] objects.
It seems that the goal of arresting and transferring these prisoners is to place additional pressure on Ayatollah Boroujerdi to write a letter of repentance.
Please sign to support them, It's our duty.
