Hamza Darwish, a Sunni prisoner detained in the Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, who started his hunger strike on September 25th, 2018, has entered the 49th day of his hunger strike.
According to the Campaign for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners, Hamza Darvish, a prisoner in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, started his 49th days of his hunger strike with unsuitable conditions.
Informed sources told the Campaign: “Hamza Darvish has already lost more than 15 kilos in prison since the beginning of hunger strike, by his eyes and vision have been severely damaged, he is suffering from serious problems with the kidney and digestive system, even vomiting blood many times, and lost conscious. The prison authority has sent him to clinic while he was unconscious and in coma and immobilization, and after he has gained conscious, they returned him to jail. “
It has also been reported that the Supreme Court told his father, Mr. Hamza Darwish, that the permission to rescind his child case is only possible with the consent of the Ministry of Intelligence”.
Hamzah Darvish, on September 25th, 2018, started hunger strike to protest the denial of access to a lawyer and failure to process an appeal to the Supreme Court.
This Sunni prisoner was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment on charges of “propaganda against the regime” and “acting against national security in the country” by Branch 28 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court under the chairmanship of Judge Moghiseh.
He believes that “only because of not cooperation with the Ministry of Intelligence, he has been sentenced to prison terms and there is no security problem in his case.”
He repeatedly stated that ” In 2014, ISIL troops tricked him into Turkey and then transferred him to Syria. For some time, he was in ISIL prison, and then escaped to Iran and introduced himself to the security forces, and even he had the opportunity to be free and to engage in a quail breeding business. “
However, he is forced to spend 15 years in a prison to serve his 18 years imprisonment sentence for an abstruse case.
