(Jaras) While Rahim Rashi has been on hunger strike for civil rights for 17 days, he is still at the Revolutionary Guards’ Intelligence Office’s jail in Urumiyeh. Besides the danger to his health, he faces new restrictions that have been put in place to apply more pressure on him.
According to a Horana report, Rahim Rashi is 57 years old and from the city of Mahabad. While he has been on hunger strike for 17 days, the people in charge at the Guards’ Intelligence Office have prohibited him from seeing his family.
In expressing worry about her father’s poor physical condition and his unknown fate in the Guards’ Intelligence Office’s prison, Rashi’s daughter, Sooran Rashi, in her last interview stated, “After 17 days being on hunger strike and his unknown fate in prison, my father’s physical condition is in peril.”
She also pointed out that, “No matter how many times members of my family went to the Intelligence Office in Mahabad and the Guards’ Intelligence Office in Urumiyeh in order to see my father, no permission to visit has been issued to them by the people in charge of the prison.”
