Dr. Aafia Assaulted in Prison to Point of Unconsciousness
June 4, 2013
FORT WORTH: Last week, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui who is detained at Carswell Prison at a US Military base in Fort Worth, United States was physically assaulted in her prison cell and left unconscious and bleeding.  She eventually received medical care after two days and intervention by her lawyer, Ms. Tina Foster.  Dr. Aafia was visited by her lawyer within days of the incident and is now in better condition.  The Pakistani consulate in Texas also sent a high level team to visit Dr. Aafia.
She has still not been able to visit with family members. The last family visit was over a year ago.


This latest "incident" underscores the need for independent medical treatment of Dr. Aafia that is outside of the prison system. It also further highlights the urgent need for her repatriation to Pakistan where she may serve out her sentence and the governments can avoid the diplomatic problems that arise from incidents of this type.

Carswell prison claims it is conducting an "internal investigation into the incident". The findings will likely remain secret
