Hossein Ronaghi: The issue is injustice and lawlessness

12079095_742066049270567_735153121159237293_nThe Prosecutor’s office has ordered the 1.4-billion toman bail with our home along with the homes of friends and neighbors as collateral to be seized.

What is adding further distress to my family and me is that according to the new laws, I have 4 more years of prison time therefore they can legally seize 400 mllion tomans (100 million per year) but in order to add torment, they intend to confiscate all the collateral properties which are worth more than 3 billion tomans.

Aside from all this, even assuming that I am guilty of the charges against me, if my sentencing had been made according to the Islamic Penal Code and the cyber crimes laws, I would have received 4 years maximum not 15 years in prison. So I have already spent 2 years more than what I should have in prison wasting my life and causing my health problems.

On the other hand, there are many legal means by which sending me back to prison can be avoided. Yet for six years my family and those around me have been subjected to hardship stemming from my imprisonment and probation. Even putting aside my health issues – which after five years the Prosecutor claims don’t exist according to the legal coroner’s office and that I am healthy – I don’t understand what the issue is when the Prosecutor’s office and IRGC units say this is not their concern?

I got in touch with the Prosecutor’s office and told them that because I object to their illegal actions I will not present myself to prison but they can come and arrest me. I assured them that I have no intention to run away or leave Iran and if they contact me I will present myself in front of the Prosecutor’s office or my father’s home where they can arrest me. However the consequences of whatever may happen to me in my poor physical condition or to my family will rest on the shoulders of the judiciary and IRGC intelligence units.

Going back to prison and tolerating more time behind bars is not the point. The issue is the lawlessness and injustice that is happening in the Islamic Republic when they do not adhere to their own laws.

This time I will stand until my death against these circumstances that I do not deserve.


Letter by Hossein Ronaghi’s father to President Hassan Rouhani


In the name of God the Merciful

The Honorable Dr. Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran


I respectfully inform you that during the past 6 months the interrogating officers of my son Seyed Hossein Ronaghi Maleki have denied him his needed medical care.

This is despite the following:

1-    My son’s blood density has increased and his blood has turned black.

2-    He suffers from gastrointestinal bleeding.

3-    He has renal bleeding, severe kidney disease, burning and frequency of urine.

4-    He is suffering from infectious disease.

It is clear that my son is in a dire and alarming physical situation. The physicians have recommended that he receive immediate medical care and be treated for his maladies. Yet despite this grave situation, he is even barred from his legal right to receive medical furlough. Every time he is taken to the hospital, he is transferred back to prison soon after, causing his sicknesses to regress. He has undergone several surgeries but the operations are rendered useless since he is not allowed recovery time and his ailments revert to their pre-surgery dismal state.

Mr. President,

I ask that you carry out legal justice and implement the constitutional law. I ask that you prioritize your attention to this important matter, because due to the actions of the interrogators, my son’s life is in danger.

Therefore I am making an urgent appeal to you for an immediate follow-up on this case as stipulated by law.

With respect,

Seyed Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki

ریاست محترم جمهوری اسلامی ایران جناب آقای دکتر حسن روحانی
با عرض سلام
احتراماً به استحضار میرساند بازجویان فرزندم سیدحسین رونقی ملکی در طول شش ماه گذشته حتی اجازۀ درمان او را ندادهاند. این در حالی است که:
1- خون فرزندم در زندان سیاه و غلیظ شده است.
2- خون ریزی دستگاه گوارشی دارد.
3- خون ریزی کلیوی و ناراحتی شدید کلیوی و سوزش ادرار و تکرر ادرار دارد.
4- به بیماری عفونی مبتلا شده است.
که مشخص است چه وضع وخیم و اسفناکی دارد و به این دلایل پزشکان معالج تجویز کردهاند که به فوریت باید تحت معالجه و درمان قرار گیرد. اما با این وضع ناگوار از مرخصی قانونی هم بی بهره است و هر مرحله پس از معالجه باز به زندان برگردانده میشود و باز بیماری وی عود پیدا میکند. وی چند بار هم تحت عمل جراحی قرار گرفته که به همین دلایل باز وضع وی به حالت سابق برگشته و کل درمان بیهوده بوده است. جناب رئیس جمهور اینجانب از جنابعالی اجرای قانون اساسی و عدالت را خواستارم و توجه شما را به این مساله معطوف میدارم که جان فرزندم از طرف بازجویان در خطر است. لذا درخواست رسیدگی فوری طبق قانون را دارم.
با تقدیم احترام. سیداحمد رونقی ملکی-10/09/92
