Karaj; Arkan Palani, a striking prisoner of conscience, was taken to a hospital after anesthesia

Hana; Saturday, June 25, 2022,  "Arkan Palani Jaf" from Sarpol-e Zahab, a prisoner of conscience who has been on a dry strike since May 31, 2022, in protest of deprivation of parole, deployment and medical examination. After anesthesia, he was transferred to Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj.


Arkan Palani Jaf, who went on strike by sewing lips, was beaten by prison officials on the twelfth day of the strike.
It should be noted that he was arrested by security forces in Tehran on September 3, 2017, and after three months of interrogation in Evin and Kermanshah Intelligence Detention Centers 209, he was finally transferred to Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj.
Arkan Palani Jaf was later sentenced by Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran, headed by Judge Moghiseh, to 7 years and 6 months in prison on charges of "acting against national security" by collaborating with ISIS. Some time ago, after the court agreed to request the release of this prisoner of conscience, who is in his fifth year of imprisonment, his family prepared several village documents and went to the Tehran court, but each time the court refused to issue a power of attorney on bail.
