The life of a prominent imprisoned human rights lawyer, Abdolfattah Soltani, is in “danger,” said his wife, Masoome Dehghan, on Facebook on Feb 21. “You could see his face is pale and he has become very weak from stomach and intestinal problems… He’s in prison for defending the law… Who’s responsible for the lives of prisoners?… My husband’s life is in danger. Who’s responsible? Answer me!” she wrote in a post that has been removed.

Soltani was seen by a specialist outside Evin Prison in Tehran and underwent procedures to examine parts of his badly damaged digestive tract, wrote Dehghan, adding that the health of her husband, who has spent more than six years in prison, will not improve under the stressful conditions of incarceration, according to doctors. Soltani has been sentenced to 10 years in prison but is eligible for early release for serving more than half of his term. Learn more about his case:
