Champion Iranian bodybuilder stitched his lips to protest inhumane prison


“We do not have freedom after speech.” An Iranian political prisoner and champion bodybuilder stitched his lips together in protest for being held at an inhumane penitentiary in Tehran where he is denied adequate medical care for severe health problems. “His name is Khaled Pirzadeh and he is the Third World Bodybuilding Champion. He has now been in prison for two years for insulting the supreme leader of Iran. His back has been broken and he is confined to a wheelchair because of the torture he has endured,” tweeted Sardar Pashaei, the renowned Greco-Roman Iranian wrestler world champion, on Saturday.
