Law Bureau of the Oppressed (EHB) has declared that the women prisoners, who were on hunger strike in Elazığ Type T Prison, ended their hunger strike on the 63rd day.
The women prisoners went on hunger strike due to special prison ID practice as well as ill-treatment. They were sent to another prison two days ago.
Six women prisoners went on hunger strike on November 10, 2017 for ill-treatment and rights violations in prison to end.
Diyarbakır Bar gave the following information concerning the rights violations in the wake of its meeting with the prisoners on hunger strike:
“Detainees and prisoners have been imposed the obligation by prison administration to carry ID on them in the areas other than wards. This practice is considered unlawful, unfair, derogatory and inhumane by the detainees and prisoners.
“Some detainees and prisoners have gone on hunger strike since this right violation is not fixed”. (AS/TK)
