Two main points
Please note that there were more than one letter sent to you to inquire about our situation in the Department of deposit in the women’s prison in Adra, None of our letters have been answered … and when we asked the prison administration about our mysterious situation. The prison’s reply was always that nothing to do with the prison administration and you officials in the terrorism court are the only ones who can deal and responsible for our long and hard presence term in the prison, especially we have among us a lot of older women, the sick and pregnant women, mothers and university students and employees, and where the number of inmates is increasing day after day while there are only a few days on the advent of Ramadan. . Accordingly, the inmates in the Department of deposit in Adra prison for women has decided to start a peaceful hunger strike starting Monday Dated 01/07/2013 until our status in prison is considered, dealt with and accelerate brining our cases to the competent courts, noting that many of us, the striking prisoned women have exceeded the duration of four to six months. As we draw your attention to the fact that many of the inmates are barred from communicating and getting in touch with their parents and relatives. Also, most of our parents and relatives cannot come to visit us in the prison due to the current poor and unsafe conditions of the roads which increases our suffering. Please reply to us clearly and quickly, and thank you very much
