-CHRR interview with Hossein Ronaghi Maleki’s father regarding his son’s health dangerously worsening in prison

Seyed Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki, father of this political prisoner said in an interview with CHRR, “They are holding Hossein behind bars so they can break him. Anything that happens to Hossein is planned; judicial and prison authorities are directly responsible.”

CHRR asked Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki the reasons for Hossein’s internal bleeding. “When Hossein was on furlough, due to his health issues we prepared 10 to 15 small healthy meals according to the necessary diet for taking his medicines. But since his return to prison, the food provided is against physicians’ orders; last time they said they did not know but this time they certainly know.”

Seyed Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki said, “They kept my son in solitary confinement for 13 months and tortured him, which is against the laws of the Islamic Republic. I ask, would their children be able to tolerate even 10 days in solitary cells? They are keeping Hossein in prison to kill him. Everyone knows Hossein does not belong in prison.”

Hossein Ronaghi Maleki’s father said, “His last lawyer was Mr. Dadkhah and I am very thankful to him. Mr. Dadkhah was sentenced to prison stemming from his work on Hossein’s case along with other cases he was working on and unfortunately I have not been able to find another lawyer for Hossein. The sentences that I saw in Hossein’s files are unjust and illegal. Judge Pir Abassi’s office manager didn’t want to write anything himself; he demanded that Hossein sign even though Hossein had a broken hand at the time. Hossein’s court case was originally under the jurisdiction of Branch 16 but later without explanation it was moved to Branch 26 presided by Judge Pir Abassi. Right there in front of my eyes they punched my son in the stomach where he had undergone several operations and my son suffered form internal bleeding again. No matter how much we pleaded that they take him to a hospital they refused. In my opinion they want to kill him and they are obligated to give us an answer.”

He said, “I ask the Head of the Judiciary, commanders of the IRGC, Human Rights Commission and experts to not keep these people in prisons. Our religion is one of forgiveness. Hossein never harmed a soul and only wanted to serve his country. If we would have known this would be his fate, we wouldn’t have let him stay here, but Hossein’s wish was to stay and serve his country.”

The father of Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, political prisoner incarcerated in Evin prison said to CHRR, “According to what is stipulated in the country’s laws, a person who is this sick should not be kept in prison. This is the law of the Islamic Republic which should be followed in the entire world. They should not be able to kill people in this way without being held accountable for their actions. Neither the prison organization nor do any of the other departments of the ruling apparatus take any responsibility. The judiciary and those in charge have to be liable and act according to what is dictated in the law instead of holding a twenty something youth who could have been of service to his country in prison.”

In ending Seyed Ronaghi Maleki said to CHRR, “Keeping Hossein in prison is a deliberate act and they want to kill him. I ask the president of the Islamic Republic, Mr. Rouhani to do more than give a pledge and follow-up on his words. Imprisoning these youth will not resolve any problems. Those who could be an asset to the prosperity and progress of the country should not be held in prison under these dire conditions.”
