Iranian human rights defender Arash Sadeghi has been diagnosed with a bone tumour 
that may be cancerous. The authorities are disregarding medical advice which
recommends his immediate transfer to a facility specializing in cancer treatment
Critically ill prisoner of conscience and human rights defender Arash Sadeghi, aged 31, has learned that he has a
tumour in his elbow that may be cancerous. Over the past 18 months, he has

 experienced persistent pain in his 
elbow and shoulders. Instead of referring him for diagnostic tests, the prison clinic had only prescribed him anti
inflammatory drugs. In late May 2018, he finally received an X-ray in the prison clinic in Raja’i Shahr prison, Karaj
Soon afterwards, he received a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan outside prison. This was followed by an 
unexpected transfer to a medical expert specializing in cancer treatment. Arash Sadeghi has said that he was 
puzzled by this medical visit and his repeated requests for information from the doctor were left unanswered; he 
just overheard a conversation among the medical staff that he was suspected of having “bone sarcoma”, which he 
later learned is a rare cancer that often starts in the bones of the arms or legs. On 13 June, he was transferred for 
another medical appointment outside the prison, during which he was allowed by a guard to briefly look at his 
medical file. This is when he found out that doctors had discovered a tumour in his elbow and advised that he be
immediately admitted to the Cancer Institute of Imam Khomeini Hospital to establish whether it was cancerous
However, he and his family have not been allowed by the Prosecutor’s Office to see his entire medical file
In the days that followed, Arash Sadeghi talked to a member of staff at the prison clinic who told him that “time is of 
the essence” in his situation and that he should be immediately tested for bone cancer. His family subsequently 
appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office in Tehran to authorize his transfer to Imam Khomeini Hospital. However, the 
Prosecutor’s Office rejected their request and insisted that his treatment take place in Madani Hospital in Karaj
Amnesty International is concerned that Madani Hospital does not have the necessary equipment and expertise to 
diagnose and treat bone cancer. This hospital also has a partnership with the State Prison Organization, which 
allows the authorities to exercise full control over prisoners’ medical records and to restrict or withdraw access to 
these records from prisoners and their families
Please write immediately in English, Persian, or your own language, calling on the Iranian authorities to
 Release Arash Sadeghi immediately and unconditionally, as he is imprisoned solely for peacefully exercising his
rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly through his human rights work
 Immediately provide Arash Sadeghi with the specialized medical care he needs outside prison, including cancer 
screening and treatment, while ensuring his rights to informed consent, confidentiality, privacy and full access to his 
medical file
 Protect him from further torture and other ill-treatment, including through the denial of adequate medical care
and investigate those responsible for persistently denying him medical care and bring them to justice in 
proceedings that meet international fair trial standards
