Four Sunni Kurdish Death Row Prisoners In Dire Health On Day 66 Of Hunger Strike

On day 66 of their hunger strike, the four death row Sunni Kurdish prisoners of conscience have been reported to be in dire health.

On Wednesday January 8, Hamed Ahmadi, one of the four Kurdish prisoners on hunger strike, fell unconscious and was taken to the prison’s medical clinic.

An informed source told HRANA, “After some hours when he became conscious he noticed all his clothing were wet. When he asked the other prisoners why his clothing was wet, he was told that the physician at the clinic did not believe he was unconscious so he poured water on him.”

This source also said, “Hamed Ahmadi fell down as he was going to the bathroom for his ritual wash before performing Namaz (daily prayers) and hit his head on the stone sink. Today, his blood pressure was at 80 over 50 and the doctors said Ahmadi and Jamshid Jahangir Dehghani’s healths are in dire condition. When Hamed became conscious at the clinic he saw that he was hooked to an IV and they were taking pictures of him.”

On Wednesday night, Jamshid Dehghani also fell unconscious and was taken to the medical clinic. As of the time of this report, his status is not known.

Hamed Ahmadi, Kamal Malaei, Jamshid Dehghani and Jahangir dehghani launched a hunger strike as of Monday November 4, 2013, protesting labor union issues and their death sentenced.
