Five Political Prisoners End Their Hunger Strike

Farshad Ghorbanipour, Saeed Matinpour, Saeed Jalalifar, Javad Alikhani and Arash Saghar who launched a hunger strike when they were transferred to solitary confinement, have ended their hunger strike upon being returned to Ward 350 of Evin prison.

These five political prisoners along with Bahman Ahmadi Amouie had been transferred to solitary confinement after they were attacked by special guards units while they were holding a memorial service for Hoda Saber (he died on hunger strike in Evin last year).

On Monday June 11, Farshad Ghorbanipour, Saeed Matinpour, Saeed Jalalifar, Javad Alikhani and Arash Saghar launched a hunger strike to protest their transfer to solitary confinement.

Monday evening, June 11, as political prisoners in Ward 350 were holding memorial services for Hoda Saber, they were attacked by about 50 special units guards.

Six prisoners were taken to solitary confinement in the aftermath of the attack. Bahman Ahmadi Amouie was transferred to Rejaei Shahr prison the next day.
