Osanloo heart condition 'worsens'

28 April 2011

The ITF has received news that Mansour Osanloo’s heart condition has worsened and he urgently needs surgery. The organisation therefore once again calls on the government of Iran to release him from jail so that his medical needs can be met.

The ITF also reminds the Iranian authorities that they will be judged not only by the people of Iran but by the world on their response to the demonstrations that will take place on May the First for worker and human rights.

Meanwhile, Gholamreza Gholamhosseini of the Vahed Syndicate was released on bail (US$30,000) from Rejaishahr prison yesterday after six months of detention. His colleagues, Ebrahim Madadi, Reza Shahabi and of course Mansour Osanloo remain in jail.
