He who had lost 35 kg of his weight, has been transferred to the clinic multiple times and finally was transferred from special ward of clergies to ward 209, on March 4.
Mr. Moosavi’s wife told HRANA’s reporter, “39 days has passed from the hunger strike of my husband but nothing has been done by officials in special court of clergies. It seems that it is normal for them, and they savagely pay no attention to lawful requests of my husband”.
Mr. Moosavi continued, “from the beginning of the hunger strike, they did not allow him to visit physician, until his condition became critical and he was transferred to Evin’s clinic. Since then he has transferred to prison clinic multiple times and received serum. He has lost 35 kg and has been transferred to ward 209 since March 4”.
She emphasized, “once he was transferred to the court and he was asked to end the strike, then they would consider his requests, but he refused and responded after his requests are considered he will end the strike”.
