Hunger Strike of Two Political Prisoners in Gohardasht Prison
According to the latest news received from the Gohardasht Rajaishahr Prison, through a telephone conversation with a political prisoner Mr. Khaled Hardani, Mr. Hardani and another political prisoner Mr. Mansour Radpour have gone on a hunger strike due to extreme physical and psychological pressure put on political prisoners by the prison officials in Section 4 of the Gohardasht Prison.
The recent pressures are due to the fact that the political prisoners in Section 4 had organized a memorial for the 2nd anniversary of Akbar Mohammadi’s (a prominent political prisoner) murder in the Islamic Regime Prisons.
The hunger strike started yesterday, Sunday August 4th 2008, after Mr. Hardani and Mr. Radpour wrote a letter of protest against one of the head guards “Jaruyi”. There is a possibility that other political prisoners might join the hunger strike as well. We will publish any further news that may come from Gohardasht Prison in this regards.
