Iranian reformist organization, Islamic Iran Participation Front issued an open letter to the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps, Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari to announce that he is responsible for "cruelties and disasters" that the political prisoners have been subjected to in Iran's prisons.

Norooz website reports that the opposition group has expressed grave concern over the well-being of one of its detained members, Mohsen Safai Farahani.

According to the letter Safai Farahani who suffers from heart complications has passed out a number of times in recent days and is not receiving adequate medical care at Evin Prison.

Last Friday, Effat Khatibi, wife of Safai Farahani described her husband's heart problems in an interview with Kaleme website and warned the judiciary and security forces about the critical nature of Safai Farahani's health and urged the authorities to grant her husband leave so that he can receive adequate medical attention.

Mohsen Safai Farahani was arrested on June 20, 2009 in the wave of arrests following the protests against the disputed re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president. He is sentenced to six years in prison for the charge of activities against national security.

He was released on bail last February but was recalled back to prison after he, along with six other prominent reformists, issued a letter of complaint against a top Revolutionary Guards figure which has been referred to as Commander Moshfeq.

The seven reformists accused this individual of illegal interference in the election process.
