HRANA: Political prisoner Mohammad Nazari, has embarked on a hunger strike to protest his conditions in prison. Mohammad Nazari has sewn his lips together.
Mohammad Nazari was arrested in 1992. He has been in prison for more than twenty years on charges of "contact with the Democratic Party of Kurdistan." He was first sentenced to death, but at appeals level his sentence was reduced to life in prison. He has not been allowed a single day of furlough over the past twenty years, and remains inside Rajaee Shahr Prison in Karaj.
According to HRANA, Nazari has repeatedly asked judicial authorities for a review of his case and his conditions, but his requests have never been addressed. Nazari's family have also been pursuing his case in the Iranian Judiciary for five years, but have been unable to receive any attention from judicial authorities.
"Mohammad was only 22 when he was arrested 20 years ago. He had not engaged in any armed activities. His was only involved in propaganda and should not have to spend his entire life in prison. We have followed his case for five years, asking for his release, but authorities from the Judiciary do not respond to our requests," said a source close to Mohammad Nazari.
In a letter from prison dated 22 August, 2012 in which he described his cellmates, imprisoned Iranian journalist Bahman Ahmadi Amouee wrote, "Mohammad Nazari was 22 when he was arrested. He is now spending his twentieth year behind bars, but he looks like he is 60 years old."
