Mohammad Hossein Rafiee Has Been Released on a Medical Furlough

September 20, 2016

Committee on Concerned Scientists has been informed that retired Tehran University professor, Dr. Mohammad Hossein Rafiee, has been released from Evin Prison on a Medical Furlough due to poor health. He has been allowed to recuperate at his family’s home.

We are all very grateful that he will have a chance for an effective recovery and be allowed to recover fully with appropriate medical care. We also are in support of the Iranian authorities offering parole to the 71 year old professor and allowing him to live out the remainder of his life with his loved ones.
