In a letter, Amir Hossein Moradi’s Lawyer, addressed the head of the Judiciary and warned about his client’s condition objecting the non-conversion of his status.
The human rights center of “No to Prison- No to Execution”; September 18, 2021- Lawyer Babak Paknia warned in a letter about Amir Hossein Moradi’s condition. The letter, addressing the head of Iran’s Judiciary reads in part: “Amir Hossein Moradi is suffering from an incurable skin disease. I repeatedly told the prison authorities and the supervising judge that his current situation would actually exacerbate my client’s illness. The supervising judge stated that the prison regulations were imposed by the prison authorities and were beyond their control. Thus, my client is facing a fruitless cycle (of follow-ups) and no authority is held accountable.”
In the letter, Babak Paknia also said, “No matter how many times my client’s mother and I requested and told them not to allow Amir Hossein Moradi to be sent back into quarantine section, nobody listened to us. The skin disease exacerbated again.”
“What is this situation? I presented my client’s skin disease images to the branch’s office and sent it to your colleagues at the Media Office of the Judiciary! I repeatedly stated that the condition of the client’s skin disease is dire despite being sent to a hospital. The honorable judges, including the president and the prosecutors, refused to even order the registration of the bill.”
“According to the recent announcement by the trusted physician of the Judiciary (document is attached), his skin condition is in the most serious condition possible, and on the other hand, due to the use of strong medications for his skin problem, the client’s stomach and liver are also in a very dangerous state,” Paknia stressed.
Babak Paknia said: “I repeatedly referred to your (the Head of the Judiciary) colleagues and sent a letter to your office and strongly requested the conversion of the defendants’ status quo, especially Amir Hossein Moradi’s, considering the legal regulations and according to the precipitated action of the Supreme Court.”
The lawyer added: “Now the work has reached a point where I am referring to the Revolution Court magistrates with heartbreaking photos of the client’s body, but they not only don’t agree with the conversion but also they do not order the registration of a bill for it.”
At the end, the lawyer asked, “Does the law, ethics, human and Islamic principles not mandate that this situation be converted from temporary detention to another status? Is the judge not facing a duty in such cases? What good action does exist above the preservation of human’s life? »
