Kaveh Ghassemi Kermanshahi on Hunger Strike

Friday 21 May 2010

Change for Equality: Kaveh Ghasemi Kermanshahi has been on a hunger strike in objection to his unclear situation. The human rights activist has now spent nearly four months in solitary confinement in the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center in city of Kermanshah. Despite the conclusion of his interrogations, he continues to be kept in solitary confinement. Kaveh and his family have been repeatedly promised that he can be release on bail but so far they were not permitted to post bail. In the duration of his detention, Kaveh was not permitted to call his family and was given only two visitations. The state of his case and his charges are still unclear and his lawyers don’t have access to his files.

To protest his condition, Kaveh Kermanshahi began a hunger strike one week ago and only ended his hunger strike after he was allowed to make a phone call to his family. Due to the hunger strike, Kermanshahi is in poor physical condition, and he has expressed great concern about the harsh conditions of his detention.
