Ill prisoner denied healthcare for years
Tortured Iranian Kurdish prisoner Kamal Sharifi, unjustly jailed since 2008, has suffered irreparable harm to his health and faces risks to his life because of prolonged deliberate denial of adequate specialized medical care for his heart disease and other health problems. Given his ill-health, he is at heightened risk of death or severe illness if he contracts Covid-19 in prison. Officials have also deprived him of family visits for nearly 14 years, causing him mental distress.
