Sad news about Davod Bagheri from a prison in Turkey

We have just been informed that regrettably Mr Dawood Bagheri, a, member of the “Freedom and Equality Seeking Students” movement who had fled to Turkey four months ago, has attempted to commit suicide. He is now kept at the Aderneh Prison’s hospital.
The unbearable detention condition and the inhumane treatment at the hands of the Turkish detention guards pushed Mr Bagheri towards despair and suicide.
Mr Bagheri was a student activist and following the Iranian authorities’ crack down on student movements in December 2007 was forced to flee Iran.
We call on all pro-human rights organisation s and the United nations High Commission for Refugee to urgently intervene to save the life of Dawood Bagheri.
