Political prisoner Soheil Arabi sent a letter out of the Greater Tehran Penitentiary on Saturday, April 4, 2020, announcing that he is going on hunger strike again to protest the authorities’ failure to deliver on their promise to send him to hospital, the abysmal prison conditions, his continued imprisonment and depriving him of prison leave during the coronavirus crisis.
Prison authorities in the Greater Tehran Penitentiary had earlier promised Mr. Arabi to send him to a civic hospital on April 4.
In a part of his letter, Mr. Arabi wrote: “Why was I deprived of prison leave? They say because I adhered to my beliefs. I am neither a murderer nor a thief. All I did was to write the truth. And I have been imprisoned for telling the truth. Those who had embezzled money were granted prison leave and are now at large. Armed robbers are now at large. What is the danger of a journalist? That he reveals the truth and informs people of their rights and duties.”
