In a report, Amnesty International reviewed the case of about 100 prisoners who lost their lives as a result of “deprivation of medical care” and “deliberate obstruction” of access to medicine and treatment in Iranian prisons.

In this investigative report, Amnesty International accused the authorities of the Islamic Republic of “terrible disregard for human life” and “shocking violation of the right to life” in connection with these deaths.

The report was published on Tuesday, April 12, under the title “In the Death Waiting Room: Deaths from Deprivation of Medical Care in Iranian Prisons.”

The report lists 96 prisoners who have died in the past 12 years as a result of “deliberate obstruction” of access to medical care, based on documents and evidence compiled by Amnesty International.

The list includes the names and death records of 92 men and four women who have died in 18 different provinces and 30 prisons across Iran.

The case of 20 prisoners, meanwhile, was political in nature, but the rest were convicted or charged with non-political crimes whose deaths had more limited media coverage.

Amnesty International said it had more restrictions on collecting documents from non-political prisoners because direct access to resources related to them was “more challenging” than policies.

According to an Amnesty International investigation report, “systematic immunity of human rights violators from punishment in Iran” is cited as one of the factors that allows prison officials to continue the process of fatally depriving prisoners of medical care.

Amnesty International called the immunity a crisis, adding: “Given this situation, Amnesty International reiterates the urgent need for the United Nations Human Rights Council to establish an international mechanism for the collection, analysis and storage of relevant evidence. “It emphasizes the most serious international crimes committed in Iran, with the aim of facilitating a fair criminal trial in the future.”
