“…here the prisoners are degraded, mocked and insulted and the privilege of seeing a doctor is not available to just anyone. I know of a prisoner in Ward 2 by the name of Daryoush Arjamand who has been in solitary confinement now for 25 months. He is suffering from AIDS. It has been some time now that the prison doctors have discontinued his antibiotics hoping that he will die. They have even refused to give him ointments and bandages for the sores on his body that are caused by AIDS. People are afraid of opening his cell door and letting him out to use the toilet or the shower. Even the light bulb in his cell has been burnt out for a while now and no one will go in to replace it”. > Read more
