I am Ismail Gerami, a carton making factory retired worker . I want to increase my and other retirees salaries in accordance with the law and I have participated in the legal protest rallies of retirees. I have been convicted under the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran and sentenced to 4 years in prison. I have been in «Greater Tehran Prison» for 9 months now.
Where in the world is a 66-year-old retiree with epilepsy, prostate, low back pain and toothache , sentenced to prison just for protesting against non-payment of his salary and participating in gatherings?
The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is treating a retiree in such a way but makes a great fuss over the human rights issue
The «Greater Tehran Prison» where I am imprisoned is an example of an Iranian prison that does not have drinking water and the prisoner has to buy it himself. It is even very low quality in terms of food! In some cases, prisoners have to prepare their own food.
In «Greater Tehran Prison» there is not even hot water suitable for bathing.
I was the voice of retirees and I expect all retirees, colleagues and friends, to be my voice and translate this letter into any language they can and send it to the unions of different countries as well as the human rights organization, so that the world to know that the Human rights claim by the Iranian government is nothing but a lie.
