Reza Shahabi on Medical Treatment strike

Reza Shahabi was also attacked as recently the security forces raided the section 350 of Evin-prison and physical abused and assaulted the prisoners.
They tugged Reza Shahabi and threw him violently out of bed by holding his feet. This brutal act intensified the back and leg pain of Reza.
Despite this situation the chief of sick ward of prison refuse to send him and other political prisoners to a hospital out of the prison with the feeble excuses such as: the minimum number of requests is not reached or you simulate. Even accessing the sick ward in prison means many body searches, insult and offense.

In protest against these conditions Reza Shahabi started a Medical Treatment Refusal beginning August 11, 2013.
