Political prisoner goes on hunger strike after being tortured for writing Student Day statement from prison

Arash Sadeqi went on a hunger strike in protest to being beaten after being subjected to pressure by interrogators for writing a letter in prison which was published (in the media).

According to his family, after his statement for Student Day was published, he was severely beaten by interrogators in cellblock 209 in Evin Prison and suffered a serious fracture in this ribcage. Interrogators refused to take him to the infirmary. Therefore Arash Sadeqi went on a hunger strike on December 10.

Notably, this prisoner had also suffered a broken shoulder in his past detentions. (Human Rights Activists in Iran – Dec. 13, 2010)
