مراسم تشییع پیکر هدی صابر، روزنامه نگار و فعال سیاسی زندانی که بر اثر اعتصاب غذا جان باخت، بامداد دوشنبه بیست و سوم خرداد ماه، در بهشت زهرای تهران برگزار خواهد شد.ا

 منابع خبری  جرس  گزارش داده اند که مراسم تشییع پیکر آن شهید، ساعت هفت و نیم بامداد از مقابل غسالخانۀ بهشت زهرا به طرف محل دفن برگزار خواهد شد.ا

گفتنی است روز جمعه ٢٠ خرداد هدی صابر، در حالیکه در اعتصاب غذا – در اعتراض به جانباختن هاله سحابی و هتاکی حکومت به مراسم خاکسپاری عزت الله سحابی- به سر می برد، دچار وخامت اوضاع شده و با تاخیر بسیار و چندین ساعت پس از تحمل درد به بیمارستان انتقال داده شد، که در شامگاه شنبه ٢١ خرداد جان باخت.ا

مقامات مسئول قضایی خبر انتقال به بیمارستان و درگذشت هدی صابر را به خانواده اش نیز اطلاع نداده‌ بودند و پس از آن نیز از تحویل پیکر آن شهید به خانواده، امتناع ورزیدند.ا

صابر، عضو تحريريه مجله توقیف شده‌ ايران فردا بود، که از تاریخ ١٢ مرداد ماه ١٣٨٩ در بازداشت بسر می‌برد و از تاریخ ١٢ خرداد در اعتراض به قتل هاله سحابی دست به اعتصاب غذا زده بود.ا

بازداشت اخیر وی، سومین بار در کمتر از ده سال بود، چرا که وی پیش از آن نیز، به همراه دو همراه و همفکر دیگرش رضا علیجانی و تقی رحمانی، در خرداد ماه ١٣٨٢ بازداشت و به مدت سه ماه در سلول انفرادی نگاهداری و  در ارديبهشت ١٣٨٣ به پنج سال و نيم سال زندان محکوم شده بود. وی همچنین در ٨ بهمن ١٣٧٩ نیز بازداشت و تا ٢١ اسفندماه ١٣٨١ را در زندان گذارنده بود. ا

 Reza’s family and friends gathering at Modares Hospital


The sister of prominent Iranian journalist and rights activist Reza Hoda Saber has confirmed her jailed brother’s death following a 10-day hunger strike, according to Radio Farda.

Saber had been transferred to a hospital from Tehran’s Evin prison, where he had been held since being imprisoned along with hundreds of other activists and intellectuals in the wake of Iran’s disputed June 2009 election.

His sister, Firouzeh Saber, told Radio Farda that the family believes authorities waited several hours after Saber complained of chest pains to hospitalize him.

From jail, Saber had launched his hunger strike on June 2 to protest the treatment of another jailed rights advocate, Haleh Sahabi, who died after what eyewitnesses described as a scuffle at the June 1 funeral of her father, himself a regime opponent who had served time in Iranian jails.

“There are three issues here,” Firouzeh Saber told Radio Farda hours after his death. “First of all, why was he in prison? He had been in prison without having been sentenced. Second, why did a tragedy such as [Sahabi’s] death happen, leading [Saber] to go on hunger strike? And third, why were [authorities] so careless that it took them several hours to take him to the hospital [after he complained of chest pains].”
