Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) – Mehdi Taha of Urmia Central Prison’s Ward 14 is entering the 11th day of a hunger strike he declared August 30th in protest of being denied furlough.

Taha is currently in year six of a 15-year sentence for drug-related offenses. He has been repeatedly denied furlough over the course of his detention. According to a close source, Taha believes prison authorities are refusing his furlough requests out of spite.
