Detainees in Joe prison begin hunger-strike to protest ill-treatment and disallowing them to contact their families

A number of activists have reported that prisoners of conscience in the central prison of Joe have been on hunger strike for ill-treatment and disallowing them from contacting their relatives, as the prison administration reportedly barred detainees in building 12 from contacting and exiting to phone booth, after it previously deprived the detainees in building 14 about a week ago of contacting their families.

A number of activists have reported that prisoners of conscience in the central prison of Joe have been on hunger strike for ill-treatment and disallowing them from contacting their relatives, as the prison administration reportedly barred detainees in building 12 from contacting and exiting to phone booth, after it previously deprived the detainees in building 14 about a week ago of contacting their families.

The families of the detainees, for their part, considered this ban as a means of pressure to harsher the punishment, explaining that they have resorted to more than one side, including the so-called National human rights institution, which claimed falsely that it is observing the situation in the prisons.

They demanded that the policy of collective punishment and abuse of detainees should be stopped. The prisoners must be treated  in accordance with the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of prisoners.
