Iran: Ensure Medical Treatment for Basima Al-Jibouri (UA 135/15)

An Iraqi woman, Basima Al-Jibouri, imprisoned in Iran since 2011, is critically ill: she has been on hunger strike since 8 April. She has served four years of a five-year sentence for “espionage”, apparently imposed for associating with an Iranian diplomat in Iraq.
1) Please write immediately in Persian, English, Spanish or your own language:
  • Calling on the Iranian and Iraqi authorities to ensure that Basima Al-Jibouri has access to qualified health professionals acting in compliance with medical ethics, including the principles of confidentiality, autonomy, and informed consent;
  • Ensuring that she can have regular contact with her family, including visits;
  • Expressing concern that Revolutionary Court hearings in Iran are seriously flawed.
