Prisoner goes blind due to lack of timely treatment

Nov. 13, 2010 – According to reports, a prisoner was blinded in his right eye after an attack by a gang which works under the command of the head of Gohardasht Prison, Ali Haj Kazem.

Prisoner Zare Javadzadeh, 29, is detained in Hall 3, Cellblock 1 in Gohardasht Prison. Some time ago, a prison gang which has been organized under orders of the head of this prison to suppress dissident prisoners and sell narcotics attacked this prisoner with knives and clubs. He was stabbed in the eye and sustained a serious injury.

He was told in the prison infirmary that he had to pay a large sum of money to have an eye surgery and that the prison would not pay for his surgery. He was told that they could only take his eye out; otherwise, the prisoner would have to pay for the expenses of surgery. Javadzadeh accepted to pay the expenses for fear of going blind but said that he needed about two weeks to come up with the money. The heads of the infirmary said that they would postpone the surgery for two weeks and would wait for his payment.

After two weeks, he was able to come up with the money for surgery but a specialist doctor told him that because he waited too long for the treatment, his eye is untreatable and that he would be blinded and he did lose his eyesight in his right eye. 

Zare Javadzadeh was arrested in 2007 and was detained for a long period of time in the Shahpour Detention Center, Intelligence Agency detention center and the notorious Kahrizak ‘death’ camp. He was under severe inhumane torture for 48 days in the Kahrizak Camp. Javadzadeh was tortured along with other prisoners by Ahmad-Reza Radan and Yahaqi, two State Security Forces commanders, for two weeks in this death camp.
