Tamil political prisoners continue hunger strike despite severe deterioration in health

The health of three hunger-striking Tamil political prisoners has further deteriorated.

The three detainees of Anuradhapura prison have been hunger-striking for over 28 days, in opposition to the transfer of their cases from Vavuniya High Court to Anuradhapura.

All three were forcibly admitted to hospital by prison officials where they were placed on saline drips. However the three still refuse food.
