Committee for the Support of Hunger Strike for Kurdish Political Prisoners
According to Recent news from the Urumiye Prison, the health condition of 9 prisoners who were taken to solitary confinement 9 days ago has greatly worsened.
These prisoners are being held in cells that are four (4) meters long, and are also used as washrooms. Prisoners who have dared to complain about the situation have been subjected to severe physical and psychological torture. The prisoners have also been threatened that “these cells will become their graves”.
According to other prisoners who have seen these 9 prisoners they suffer from extremely serious illnesses including blood infested dihearea, different types of infection and skin problems. Other prisoners in Urumiye Prison are extremely disturbed about the inhumane treatment of these 9 prisoners.
The Committee for the Support of Hunger Strike for Kurdish Political Prisoners is extremely concerned about the inhumane treatment of these 9 prisoners, and while condemning the inhumane treatment of these prisoners, urge all freedom loving people and international human rights organizations to take steps to help save their lives.
