    Nasrin Sotoudeh's Health Deteriorating


    There is a shock announcement over deteriorating health of Iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh as she enters her 46th day of hunger strike in Iran's notorious Evin prison.Nasrin is a human right activists,lawyer, mother and winner of the European Union's Sakharov prize for human rights and freedom of thought is in prison for the legal defense of politicians, students and journalists, is on hunger strike since 17 October. She does not demand any accommodations for herself and her claim is neither illegal nor impossible.


    She  does not want for her child, who for the past nineteen months has not  been allowed even one 30 second call with her mother, to be pursued by  the Judiciary, or to have cases fabricated against her on account of her  mother who is a political prisoner and is obviously innocent.

    Her husband posted on his Facebook page that now her condition is so deteriorating that he doubted that she would be able to stand on her feet for the next meeting. Dizziness, impaired vision, unsteadiness in walking and low blood pressure are warning symptoms, besides her extreme thinness.


    She does not tolerate any pressure put on her to break her hunger  strike. She says, “The fact that they resist lifting the travel ban on  our daughter Mehraveh, means that their plans for her go much further.  And, if I had not gone on a hunger strike they intended to start the  next stage of their plan.


    Her inmates were very worried about her during past two days that her body does not accept liquids anymore.
