The Kaleme Website reports that Soltani has been in Sinai Hospital since Tuesday December 18, and so far the cause of his problems has not been determined by the medical team.

Abdolfattah Soltani, a prominent human rights lawyer, was jailed for the charge of "propaganda against the regime, establishing the Defenders of Human Rights Centre in Iran, assembly and collusion against the regime and acquiring pelf."

After the election protests of 2009, independent organizations such as the Defenders of Human Rights in Iran became targets of a severe crackdown, and many members of the outlawed NGO are currently serving stiff sentences in prison.
