Iran: Provide Medical Care to Hamid Babaei (UA 36/14)

Iranian postgraduate student Hamid Babaei is being denied access to the specialized medical care he needs, including medication. He suffers from recurrent panic attacks and has a ruptured eardrum for which he needs surgery. The authorities continue to deny his requests for medical leave. He is a prisoner of conscience.
1) Please write immediately in English, Persian, Arabic, French, Spanish or your own language:
  • Calling on the Iranian authorities to release Hamid Babaei immediately and unconditionally, as he is a prisoner of conscience, held solely for refusing to spy on Iranian students abroad in Belgium and because of his scholastic ties with academic institutions outside of Iran;
  • Urging them to ensure that he is immediately granted access to the medical care he needs outside prison;
  • Urging them to allow him effective contact with an independent lawyer of his choice and access to his family.
