Iranian Christian Prisoner Denied Surgery

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)– A Christian prisoner suffering internal bleeding has been denied proper medical attention in Iran, according to Barnabas Aid.

According to his prison doctors, Vahid Hakkani — who has been detained since his arrest in February 2012 — urgently needs surgery, but Iranian officials have refused to transfer him to a hospital.

Hakkani is on a ward for prisoners of conscience, many of whom also suffer physical and mental health issues as a result of its poor prison conditions.

Hakkani was arrested at a house church gathering along with a number of other Christians; although they were all accused of evangelizing and promoting Christianity, having contact with foreign Christian organisations and disturbing national security, to date none of them has been convicted of any offence.
