Dr. Mehdi Khazali Continues His Hunger Strike In Evin Prison

Following is a translation of a post on Dr. Mehdi Khazali’s son, Mohamad Saleh Khazali’s Facebook page, posted March 2, 2013.

Today was Dad’s 63rd day of hunger strike. At 6 o’clock in the afternoon the house phone rang. I answered.

It was a voice that was a testament of 63 days of hunger strike and a dad so weak that could hardly stand on his feet after all this time on hunger strike, that after a few minutes of conversation, says: “My legs are weak, I can no longer stand, so I will say goodbye”.
