Condition of political prisoners on hunger strike deteriorates Political prisoners on hunger strike

Political prisoners who were on hunger strike for over a week now have become frail and a wife of one of the prisoners told ESAT that she was worried they were not taken to a hospital.

Aselefech Mulatu, wife of Dejene Tafa said the prisoners were instead given intravenous fluid while still in their isolated dark room.

Prison administrators have kept nine prisoners of conscience separately from others in a dark room saying they were organizing the prison population for a revolt.

Bekele Gerba and et al were charged with terrorism by the regime that uses its anti-terror law to stifle dissent and muzzle the press.
