Water Shortage In Ebrat Ward of Shiraz's Adel-Abad Prison
The prisoners of conscience at Ebrat ward of Shiraz's Adel-Abad prison have faced shortage of drinking water since more than a month ago and following up on this matter and the talks with prison officials have so far been fruitless.
According to Majzooban Noor, since one month ago, drinking water has been cut off in Ebrat ward of Shiraz's Adel-Abad prison and all current prisoners of conscience in this ward, including Gonabadi Dervishes, Baha'is and converted Christians have to purchase bottled drinking water from prison shop which is hugely expensive.
According to the prisoners, they have repeatedly observed the lack of health facilities and basic amenities in jail, so the pursuits are often ineffective.
It should be noted that, since two weeks ago the Ebrat ward has been also without air conditioning and temperatures have begun to rise therefore it has led to increased water use by prisoners in order to dispel heat.
According to previous report by Majzooban Noor, the prisoners of conscience at Ebrat ward of Shiraz's Adel-Abad prison are as follows:
Kasra Nouri, the Gonabadi dervishes' rights activists and one of the collaborators of Majzooban Noor website who has been sentenced to four years and four months imprisonment on charge of belonging to a deviant group "Majzooban Noor".
Gonabadi Dervishes, Mohsen Esmaeeli, Seyed Ebrahim Bahrami, Mohammad Ali Sadeghi and Mohammad Ali Dehghan residents of Kavar town in Fars province who were charged with "the formation of terrorist group against the regime," "participating in the gatherings with the aim of overthrowing the Islamic Republic," "Moharebeh ("enmity against the God") and "carrying illegal weapons" and have been in temporary detention for three months.
Rahman Vafaee and Hamid Eslami, two Baha'is of Shiraz who were each sentenced to three years in prison on charge of propaganda against the regime and membership in the Baha'i administration.
Mojtaba Hosseini, Homayoun Shokouhi, Mohammad-Reza Partoee and Vahid Hakani the christian citizens living in Shiraz who were sentenced to three years and eight months imprisonment for propagation of the Christian faith and participating in home meetings.http://www.majzooban.org/en/
