Iranian president's press advisor, ex IRNA chief Ali Akbar Javanfekr was forced to be placed in a hospital again, due to increased kidney-related problems, ILNA reported.
Javanfekr's lawyer confirmed the reports.
About a week ago, Javanfekr, who is still under arrest in Iran's Evin prison, has been admitted to the hospital, due to heart problems.
After taking necessary tests and medicines, he returned to prison, however later was forced to attend hospital again.
He is currently in a emergency department in one of Tehran's hospitals.
Javanfekr was arrested on September 26. Tehran Penal Court in November 2011 had sentenced Javanfekr to six months in prison on charges of publishing articles contrary to Islamic regulations and six more months in prison for unethical articles.
On Nov. 19, ISNA reported that Javanfekr has been vindicated from accusations.
Previously, the court banned the ex IRNA Chief from any kind of occupation and press activity, including governmental and private ones, for three years.
Javanfekr has also been accused of insults towards Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
After Javanfekr's imprisonment, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad expressed his regret over the imprisonment.
