The International Federation of Human Rights (fidh) in collaboration with various humanitarian organizations have collected some information about 50 prisoners across Iran that since 2003, under unusual circumstances, lost their lives for various reasons, including: the aggression, refusal of treatment, torture and lack of medical care.
It seems that in some cases the government have deliberately refused to provide medical treatment in a timely manner.
Mr. Akbar Mohammadi in 2006,
Iranian journalist Hoda Saber died while on a hunger strike in prison in 2011
and some others died in prison due to lack of proper medical treatment.
Other prisoners have lost their lives under torture, as Mr. Sattar Beheshti, a blogger who died in custody in 2012.
The last case was Mr. Shahrokh Zamani, a trade unionist aged 51, who died in very suspicious circumstances in September 2015 in Rajai Shahr prison. Although authorities who said they wanted to investigate his death, but never no information has been published in this regard.
