Head of the Judiciary
I call on you to release Iranian Kurdish prisoner Zeynab Jalalian and immediately give her the treatment she needs.
I am concerned that Iran’s authorities are denying her the specialized medical treatment she urgently needs for her eyes.
Arrested for her social and political activities in 2008, Zeynab Jalalian says she was tortured in custody. She is serving a life sentence imposed after grossly unfair proceedings for her supposed links to the military wing of a Kurdish opposition group, an allegation which has not been supported by any evidence.
