Ahmed Mansoor’s health rapidly deteriorates as he continues hunger strike

Rights sources have revealed that Ahmed Mansoor’s health is worsening significantly as he enters his sixth week on hunger strike in al-Sadr prison.

Earlier this week, the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR) reported that Mansoor remains on hunger strike, protesting against his poor prison conditions and unfair trial which led to a 10-year prison sentence for his peaceful human rights activities. His family have not been permitted to see him since the beginning of his strike on 17 March.

The rights group have been informed that Mansoor's eyesight has deteriorated and he has been provided with special glasses. He is also moving slowly and is very weak, according to a confidential source in touch with GCHR.

GCHR received news in early April that Mansoor was being kept in a cell with no bed and no water, and that he was held in “terrible conditions.”
