Political prisoner Majid Assadi has been behind bars in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, west of Tehran, since his arrest by Intelligence Ministry agents on February 18, 2017.
On November 27, 2018, Branch 26 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court sentenced him to six years in prison and two years in exile in Borazjan, Bushehr Province on vague charges, such as “threatening national security through assembly and collusion,” and “propaganda against the state.
A translator at a private company, Majid Assadi was previously sentenced to four years in prison in March 2010 for “assembly and collusion against national security” by Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court. He completed the sentence on June 8, 2015.
The 35-year-old has been suffering from various illnesses, including his glands and digesting system, eyes and spinal cord.
He suffers from Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a rheumatism disease that affects the spine, according to physicians. He also has ulcers and inflammation in his vision network. Assadi’s digestive problems have intensified as a result of prison authorities’ continued hindering of his medical process.
AS syndrome is considered a dangerous disease and Majid Assadi needs to visit a hospital outside the prison every three months to control the illness. However, due to obstructions imposed by prison authorities and the regime’s judiciary, he has no access to physicians and specialized care.
A graduate from Alameh Tabatabaei University, Majid Assadi went on hunger strike back in 2012, for one week protesting the measures of the regime’s courts against two political prisoners in Ward 350 in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison. The two prisoners were Ali Moezi and Vahid Asghari, who were transferred to solitary confinement and banned from any visits.
