Nasrin Sotoudeh: Jailed Lawyer on Hunger Strike for Human Rights

December 12, 2010

Reza Khandan, the husband of Nasrin Sotoudeh, a lawyer and human rights activist illegally jailed in Evin prison, reports on the recent conversation he had with his wife during the last visit.

Nasrin Sotoudeh is currently on hunger strike. She is demanding the annulment of the unjust laws devised after the 2009 Iranian Presidential election. She needs all your support so her voice can actually matter behind prison walls. Please do all that you can for Nasrin Sotoudeh. She needs you and we need her. Thank you!

Reza Khandan:

December 12, 2010: Nasrin contacted me and she did not sound well at all. She is still on hunger strike and has visited the [prison’s] medical clinic on numerous ocassions. I asked specifically about what her demands are that would [need to be upheld] before she ended her hunger strike. Nasrin stated, “I have no personal demands, however I wish to see the annulment of all the unjust laws devised after the June 2009 election [in Iran].” She stated the same in our last visit together.

وکیل زندانی در اعتصاب غذا برای حقوق بشر

امروز شنبه 20 آذر نسرين تماس گرفت حالش خيلي بد بود به سختي مي‌توانست صحبت كند همچنان در اعتصاب غذاي خشك است در اين مدت حداقل يك بار كارش به بهداري كشيده است از او به طور دقيق‌تر راجع به خواسته‌اش از مقامات قضايي در قبال اعتصاب غذا پرسيدم گفت كه “خواسته‌ام لغو كليه احكام ناعادلانه بعد از انتخابات است و هيچ خواسته شخصي ندارم” او اين مورد را در آخرين ملاقات هم گفته بود لطفا هر چه سريع‌تر خبر اعلام شود.

با سپاس
