He has started his hunger strike and currently is in bad situation.

A close source told HRANA’s reporter, “Behnam is on hunger strike since 16 days ago and had been transferred to prison clinic two times because of law blood pressure.”

About the reason of hunger strike he said, “His only demand is to be transferred to ward 12, which is dedicated to political prisoners.”
