Zeynab Jalalian, a member of Iranian’s Kurdish minority, currently serving a life sentence in Kermanshah Prison, western Iran, is at risk of losing her eyesight and she is in urgent need of medical care.
16 july 2014 – 26 tir 1393 on Hrana: “Zeynab Jalalian’s kidney disease is getting worse and Kermanshah prison authorities ignore her for treatment and she is in critical condition.
“Zeynab Jalalian is suffering great pain in her kidney and her condition is critical. Prison’s authorities also do not act for her treatment.” One of her relatives told HRANA.
Her eyes also need treatment and she is losing her sight and it is being ignored for a long time.“
12 June 2014 – Fereshteh Ghazi on roozonline :
25 May 2014 - Arash Nezamı was informed that Zeynab Jalalian suffers from Pterygium, an eye disease [ ‘Symptoms of pterygium include persistent redness from inflammation, foreign body sensation, tearing, which can cause bleeding, dry and itchy eyes. In advanced cases the pterygium can affect vision as it invades the cornea with the potential of obscuring the optical center of the cornea and inducing astigmatism and corneal scarring,which usually requires surgery. ‘ ]; the Prosecutor’s Office is reportedly denying Zeynab the right to undergo surgery on her eye. The condition is weakening her vision and making her see blurry. An alternative to surgery (since the prosecutor won’t allow her!) is to reportedly use sterile eye drops for a long period of time. [ ‘Some of the irritating symptoms can be addressed with artificial tears. However, no reliable medical treatment exists to reduce or even prevent pterygium progression. Definitive treatment is achieved only by surgical removal. Long-term follow up is required as pterygium may recur even after complete surgical correction.’ ] The prosecutor has reportedly provided no explanation as to why he is rejecting Zeynab’s right to seek the proper medical treatment. However, the report states that Zeynab has been locked up for the past seven years now [without one single day of furlough! ] and has endured severe psychological and physical abuse. The Ministry of Intelligence have reportedly placed much pressure on her this whole time to provide them with false confessions.
