According to HRDAI, on Thursday July 29, the family of Arjang Davoudi went to Gohardasht Prison in Karaj to visit him as previously promised and emphasized by prison officials.

Although Mr. Davoudi was taken to the visit hall, in the last moment it was announced that he was banned from prison visit, without any reason besides causing mental pressures for him and his family.

Writer and scholar Arjand Davoudi is currently is severe physical conditions, and suffers from low blood pressure and hypotension, severe weakness, headache, dizziness, low vision and other complications, and has been taken to prison clinic several times. He had started his hunger strike on July 14, 2010 due to the prison’s poor condition, the behavior of the authorities and the limitations set on the prisoners.

In an interview with VOA, his wife Nazanin Davoudi had stated that she was extremely concerned about Mr. Davoudi’s health, and that the current situation reminded her of his hunger strike 2 years ago which lasted 70 days. He had become extremely weak and emaciated and had to use a wheelchair and he is once again in serious danger.
