Even though, there is no corporation with selective lawyers of these prisoners and their families. The request of the prisoners is just to have appointed attorneys in an open trial. Apparently, the prisoner’s reason for hunger strike is their unfair and without the principles of justice trial and a fair trial could end their hunger strike.”
