The spokesman for Iran's judiciary says Omid Kokabi's sentence is final and he is "being provided with all necessary facilities". ISNA reports that on Sunday April 24, Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said that Omid Kokabi, the physicist who has served five years in jail, was tried for espionage and his 10-year sentence is final.

Omid Kokabi is suffering from cancer of the kidney, and last Wednesday his right kidney was removed. His predicament has garnered widespread coverage on social media with everyone calling for his release.

Mohseni Ejei said prisoners get sick like any other person outside of prison. If it's possible to provide medical treatment inside prison facilities, it will be done, and if not, he will be transferred outside.
