Political prisoner Majid Dorri- a student activist - was arrested on July 9th 2009 in Qazvin and transferred to Evin Prison. On January 17th 2010, Branch 26 of the revolutionary court sentenced him to 11 years in prison- 1 year on the charge of “act against national security by participating in illegal gatherings.” He received 10 years for “having ties with the MKO” and told he must spend 5 years of this in Exile in the prison of Izeh in south-western Iran. His exile has since been changed to Ahvaz prison but he is still being held in Ward 350 of Evin prison.

He was refused bail during his detention and his physical health deteriorated. He has suffered from severe migraines and has not had access to medication and physicians. After several requests to meet with Tehran’s prosecutor, Majid visited Mr Jafari Dolat-Abadi on June 7th 2010 and the prosecutor promised that he would investigate and fulfil Dorri’s demands. His request for being granted prison leave was submitted in June 2010 and his family were later told that the letter had been lost despite them having previously confirmed they received it! This has now happened to Majid and his family THREE TIMES!

In addition to this cruel treatment by the regime, after 15 months in prison, Majid’s family still cannot get back his belongings form the security forces, even though they belong to the company that he worked for during his arrest.

Majid continues to be very ill in prison, suffering severe headaches and severe dizziness which is now occurring for up to 48 hours. The the internal medicine physician in Evin prison has ordered an MRI scan and a visit to a neurology doctor, but this has not been allowed. There are now grave concerns for his health as a result.

Majid Dorri has been deprived of his education and has been in detention since June 29th 2009. He is being prevented from having access to vital medical treatment to which he has a legal right.

This barbaric violation of human rights cannot be allowed to go on. Majid must be freed on leave and able to receive appropriate medical treatment.

Please sign this petition.

We, the undersigned, ask that Majid Dorri be immediately released on leave and provided with the appropriate medical treatment to which he has a legal right.
