Kalame reports, on Wednesday Evin authorities planned to take all 12 hunger strikers to Evin Court blindfolded but the detainees refused and said it is illegal to blindfold them.
These prisoners were forced to go to Evin Court but they refused to answer any questions and instead they performed Namaz (prayers) in the hallway of Evin Court.
According to witnesses, the detainees all reiterated that they all heard Hoda Saber’s testimony of how he was assaulted by security agents. They also said they all witnessed how Sober was in excruciating pain and how he repeatedly said he will file an official complaint against the people that assaulted him.
Kalame reports Abdollah Momenei and Amir Khosro Dalirsani have been treated very harshly by Evin personnel.
Interrogators have chastised Amir Khosro Dalirsani telling him that his hunger strike along with Hoda Saber’s hunger strike has caused all of these problems.
Hoda Saber and Amir Khosro Dalirsani went on a hunger strike after Halleh Sahabi was assaulted at her father’s funeral which resulted in her death. This is the second time that Amir Khosro Dalirsani has gone on a hunger strike.
Kalame also report, on Friday June 24, five of the hunger strikers were taken to Evin clinic for treatment after much delay and in poor physical condition.
The five prisoners taken for treatment are: Abdollah Momeni, Bahman Ahmadi Amouei, Mohsen Aminzadeh, Abolfazl Ghadyani and Mehdi Karimian Eghbal.
Mohsen Aminzadeh’s wife has said her husband suffers from high blood pressure and must take medication for his condition on a daily basis and being on hunger strike is a serious danger to his health.
65 year old Abolfazl Ghadyani suffers from heart condition and being on hunger strike puts him at serious health risk.
Many of these hunger strikers have been in prison under harsh conditions since June of 2009. Many of them have endured much pressure and torture during their interrogation period.
Some of these prisoners were part of what became known as “Evin 17” that were on a hunger strike for more than 30 days in fall of 2010.
