MEK Iran: In Evin Prison, six Political Inmates are on a dry Hunger Strike

sdf

The Prison Organisation and given that we have not received any response to our demands after a five-day sit-in, will be going on a dry hunger strike from 12 January 2022.

 

 

Six political inmates in Evin Prison’s Ward 8 went on a dry hunger strike on January 12 in protest of “prison officials’ complicity in Baktash Abtin’s killing,” according to Iran Human Rights.“We, the political prisoners in Ward 8 of Evin Prison, following Baktash Abtin’s death and the blatant role of prison officials, the judiciary, until our demands are met: for the aforementioned to accept responsibility and apologize in the official national press,” the letter from Evin Prison read.

 

Baktash Abtin contracted Covid-19 for the second time

Baktash Abtin was a filmmaker, poet, and member of the Iranian Writers Association when he was detained while attending a memorial service for political dissidents killed in the chain murders. Baktash Abtin contracted COVID-19 for the second time while serving his six-year term in Evin Prison in early December 2021. On December 13, Baktash was given a medical furlough and taken to a hospital. Baktash was placed in a medically induced coma on January 1 after his health “further deteriorated,” according to the Iranian Writers’ Association.

Baktash’s physical condition had deteriorated to a “severely alarming” level due to a lack of prompt access to medical care and a delay in being moved to the hospital by prison officials, according to a statement released four days later.
