Committee of Human Rights Reporters – In a letter to the Tehran Prosecutor, Hossein Ronaghi’s father divulges that a judicial office administrator has personally taken action to prevent medical furlough for the jailed activist.
In his letter Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki disclosed that an individual by the name of Sattari who is the Director of the office of Branch 26 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court is standing in the way of legal furlough for Hossein Ronaghi. Pursuant to Sattari’s actions, Branch One of the Revolutionary Court denied medical leave for Hossein Ronaghi with disregard to the information provided in Ronaghi’s submitted medical records.
Following is the letter by Ahmad Ronaghi to the Tehran Prosecutor as provided to CHRR:
In the name of God
Honorable Mr. Jafari Dolatabadi, Tehran Prosecutor General of the Public Court,
Pursuant to the letters provided by the Legal Medical Organization and the Tehran Shahrak-e Gharb Medical Commission regarding the kidney disease of Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, I request my son’s legal right per criminal law to be released.
Honorable Prosecutor, the Legal Medical Organization has sent its findings to the Prosecutor’s office.
Honorable Prosecutor, due to the absence of the presiding judge at Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court, my son’s case was transferred to Branch 1 presided by Judge Ahmadzadeh. However with the direct influence and meddling of Mr. Sattari – office Director of Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court – on February 5th without even reviewing my son’s provided medical records, Judge Ahmadzadeh presiding over Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court denied medical furlough. As stipulated by the law, this action on the part of the presiding judge was illegal.
Honorable Prosecutor, I hereby request that medical furlough be granted for my son seyed Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, who is a political prisoner in failing health.
Seyed Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki, father of Hossein Ronaghi Maleki
