As reported previously on this site (http://www.iranpresswatch.org/2009/04/arrested-kss/), on Saturday, April 25, 2009, Mr. Vahdat Dana has been arrested. Iran Press Watch has learned through sources close to the situation that Mr. Dana is suffering from a significant heart ailment, and prison conditions could deal a severe blow to his health. The family has approached the judge presiding over Mr. Dana’s case, but so far no information has been given to them about his whereabouts or his condition.
The friends of Mr. Dana have requested prayers from people of good will everywhere, so that the Almighty may continue to watch over all those who are incarcerated in Iran because of their religious beliefs.
Mr. Dana is an uncle of Sina Dana, whose expulsion from Tabriz University was reported by Iran Press Watch some time ago.
As more details become available, they will be immediately reported in these pages.
