Concern for health of Kourush Ziari in prison

HRANA, December 30

Kourush Ziari ( کوروش زیاری ), a Bahai from Gonbad-e Qabus in North-eastern Iran, was arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence in Gonbad on October 17, 2012, and later transferred to Gorgan. In the company of 6 other Bahai prisoners in Gorgan, he was transferred to Evin Prison in Tehran and finally to Raja’i Shahr prison, on December 22. He is in poor physical condition, but officials are refusing to allow him to be freed on bail. About two months before his arrest he was in an accident and suffered a torn tendon and underwent an operation, and at the time of his arrest he was still receiving physiotherapy. The treatment has stopped since his arrest, but he still needs physiotherapy and other treatment since the flow of blood to his feet is impeded and his condition is worsening by the day.
