Hunger strike by 80 Sunni prisoners in Gohardasht and fourth day of sit-in by their families

Similarly, the families of the prisoners who in the recent days had staged a sit-in to protest both the death sentences and the cruel acts against their children in the past days announced that their children have been condemned in unfair trials without having any lawyers to defend them and they had been charged with propaganda activities in favor of the Shafei religion.

 Since dawn of June 14, these four prisoners have been transferred from Gohardasht Prison to Ghezel Hessar quarantine in preparation for the execution of their death sentences. During the days of June 14, 15 and 16, in an anti-human psychological torture, the henchmen have taken the four to the gallows and put the noose around their necks and then at the last minute reiterated to the victims that their executions have been deferred until the next or following days.
