Leila Hosseinzadeh on a medication strike in Shiraz’s Adelabad prison
Her brother, Abolfazl Hosseinzadeh, wrote on his Instagram page that his sister, Leila Hosseinzadeh, had begun a medication strike in protest of the medical fraud being committed against her in prison. “They gave my sister a high dose of Cortone after sending her to the doctor and before performing any diagnostic tests, and without her permission. Prison officials forced my sister to undergo diagnostic tests at the prison’s medical facilities after administering the Cortone. Meanwhile, the high dose of Cortone masks symptoms and skews test results. My sister has been denied the use of one of her life-saving medications due to the inhumane conditions in the prison.”
