Iran: Jailed trade unionist needs urgent medical treatment

Mansour Ossanlu, the leader of the Union of Workers of the Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company (Sherkat-e Vahed), was arrested on 10 July 2007.

Mansour Ossanlu's health is deteriorating. He has been denied permission to leave the prison for treatment for pre-existing medical problems, and new ones gained through the denial of access to treatment. He was denied treatment by the case judge, despite a referral by the prison doctor following his fourth medical examination.

Despite the recommendation by the Coroner and Medical Examiner at the end of last year that Mansour be treated outside the prison the authorities continue to refuse to allow him to leave for treatment.
