Foad Khanjani still waiting for admission to hospital (update Oct. 31)

HRANA, October 10

Foad Khanjani (فواد خانجانی), a Bahai excluded from higher education who is serving a 4-year sentence in Raja`i Shahr prison near Tehran, is suffering from a cyst in the abdomen, causing pain and bleeding. He requires immediate surgery. Although he obtained all the necessary permissions for hospital treatment several weeks ago, he is still in prison. On September 27 he was taken to one hospital, but because a place for him had been reserved in a different hospital, the doctors refused to admit him.

Update: A HRANA report dated October 31 indicates that Foad Khanjani is still waiting for treatment.
