Updated: May 1, 2019

The life of Iranian physicist and political prisoner Omid Kokabee, who recently had surgery to remove a cancerous kidney, will be put in grave danger if he is returned to prison in Iran, Amnesty International warns.

Kokabee was diagnosed with advanced kidney cancer after five years of medical neglect in prison. He had his right kidney removed on April 22.
