Bahraini detainee's hunger strike enters tenth day

Bahraini detainee Hani Marhoun continues to be ignored by Manama’s oversight bodies as his hunger strike entered its tenth day on Tuesday.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Bahraini detainee Hani Marhoun continues to be ignored by Manama’s oversight bodies as his hunger strike entered its tenth day on Tuesday.

Marhoun started his hunger strike in a bid to put a stop to abuses against prisoners in the Gulf kingdom after repeated requests to meet with officials from the National Institution for Human Rights, the Ombudsman Office and other relevant bodies fell on deaf ears.

According to Bahraini rights campaigner Ebtisam Al-Saegh, Marhoun’s health is deteriorating. His blood sugar is dropping and he is experiencing numbness and spasms.

But the detainee is said to be adamant on continuing his hunger strike until Baharini officials respond to his request.

Marhoun is serving a 15-year prison sentence over what activists describe as politically-motivated charges.
