The artist and civil activist Atena Farghadani has developed signs of lymphatic disease in prison as she awaits her chance to challenge a 12-year prison sentence in the appeals court, according to her lawyer Mohammad Moghimi.

?The illness showed up recently and we are waiting to see if they send her to a specialist or to the prison infirmary,? Moghimi told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. ?We hope that considering her health issues, the sentence against her will be changed in appeals court.?
