According to the Communique number 42 of “Reza Shahabi Defense Committee“, Reza Shahabi was brought to hospital on December 15th for medical examination and X-ray analysis. The physician emphasized again that he needs a period of absolute rest with proper care and directed new spinal X-ray.
After the X-ray the prison warder of Shahabi prevented the X-ray analysis by the doctor and told to Shahabi: “we have to return to Prison immediately”. This was remonstrated by Shahabi and his family. The prison warder replied the protest of Shahabi with these words: “if you do not stop to protest, I will later beat you to a pulp in prison”.
