State of health of an activist for the workers association deteriorated

Mahmoud Salehi, Founding member of the workers Union of Saghez (in Kurdistan of Iran) and director of the Coordinating Committee for Founding Workers Organizations, of that city, has been suffering of kidney malfunction.

Mr. Salehi was transferred to the prison clinic on 17 October 2007, but returned after several hours. He had previously been taken to a hospital called Tohid in June, but then again transferred back to his cell.

Considering that Mr. Salehi has only one functional kidney, his relatives have expressed serious concern over his state of health and have stressed that prison medical facilities does not compensate for his situation.
