Ramazan Ahmad Kamal Ended His Hunger Strike
HRANA News Agency – Ramazan Ahmad Kamal, political prisoner in Rajai Shahr prison, ended his hunger strike, after about a week.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), Ramazan Ahmad Kamal, Syrian Kurdish political prisoner, who had gone on hunger strike from Saturday morning, 12th September, to protest against the lack of medical care, on Saturday 19th September after returning to the ward, said that he had ended his hunger strike.
Ramazan Ahmed Kamal was transferred to the hospital while he was on dry hunger strike and was operated, on Thursday last week. This Syrian political prisoner ended his hunger strike after the surgery and while his demands were addressed and returned to the place of his imprisonment in Rajai Shahr prison.
This Syrian prisoner went on hunger strike in March after his right-hand had got an acute infection and the risk of disability, in Qazvin prison, then he was transferred to Rajai Shahr prison by Qazvin prison’s authorities, for treatment. But Rajai Shahr prison’s authorities refrained to send him to the hospital even six months after he was sent to this prison for treatment, on the grounds that the hospital does not specify an appointment.
The right hand of this prisoner was shot in the conflict at the time of arrest and the lack of serious treatment for this political prisoner led to the muscular atrophy of his hand, and his wound got severe infection. The prison doctors believe that the only way to prevent the spread of infection and get rid of the risk of disability is sending him to the hospital, an issue that has not been achieved yet.
Ramazan Ahmed Kamal who was arrested in 2008 on charges of membership in PKK and was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, during this time was imprisoned in the prisons of; Mako, Qazvin, Evin, and Rajai Shahr.
