Despite repeated calls, Iran continues to deny medical treatment to detainees in what amounts to “a consistent pattern”, according to eight UN human rights experts, in a statement on 10 July.
The experts noted as particularly alarming the denial of medical treatment for human rights activist Arash Sadeghi, diagnosed with bone cancer, as well as of Austrian-Iranian dual national Kamran Ghaderi, who has a tumour in his leg, and of other prisoners with severe health conditions, who have also continued to be denied appropriate healthcare.
Experts also highlighted the unsafe and unsanitary detention conditions, including contaminated food and water, rodent and insect infestations, and inadequate temperature controls.
