According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Ayub Assadi, an Iranian Darvish has been sent to the hospital after his condition got worse in the prison, officials say.

He was among several Darvishes arrested recently during a demonstration in Tehran. Assadi, who has motor disorders “disorders of the nervous system that cause abnormal and involuntary movements” was transferred to hospital under tight security measures.

Lack of access to medicine is described as the reason for the exacerbation of the disease.
