Friday, 29 June 2012

Abdulfatah Soltani’s anemia is worsening and prison authorities are insisting that he be transported to the hospital in handcuffs, something he is adamantly refusing. According to his daughter, security forces are applying heavy pressure on him and his family to publicly refute human rights activists or Mrs. Shirin Abadi. Soltanti was sentenced to 18 years in prison, exile and a 20-year ban on practicing law due to his activities on behalf of human rights and the rights of political prisoners.
