Leader of Iranian Workers Transport Union transferred to prison from hospital

Mansour Osanloo, leader of Iranian workers transport Union who had been transferred from prison to hospital for an eye operation was transferred back to prison regardless of conditions.

Iranian judiciary had refused to allow his operation after Mr. Osanloos’ arrest on 10 July 2007. It is reported that the decision was taken by the infamous Judge Hassan Zare Dehnavi, known as Hassan Haddad, security deputy to Tehrans’ prosecutor.

Mr. Ossanloos’ operation was agreed under pressure from International Human right organizations and workers Union, which had expressed concern over his conditions.

Although Mr.Ossanloos’ condition requires rest and primary necessary medical supervision, it is reported that he is transferred to Evin prison clinic, which does not support the necessary accommodations for such treatments.

Mansoor Ossanloo had been beaten up and arrested on 10 July 2007, accused of distributing provocative communicates against National Security, where as his lawyer had announced that he was only distributing written demands of his fellow workers.

Mr. Ossanloo had previously been arrested and kept in prison for 7 months, and harassed after his release. He had participated in the International Labor Union Assembly in London, defending Iranian workers rights before his arrest in Iran.
