EOHR has received a phone call from inside the Al Aqrab prison on Thursday, 3/3/20111 which states that about 47 political detainees have gone on an open hunger strike since 19/2/2011 until now protesting their continued detention. Those 47 political detainees are the following:

  • 29. Hany Hassan Rashed
  • 30. Nizar Saleh
  • 31. Yussef Turkman Abu Garir
  • 32. Asaad Muhammad Hassan
  • 33. Muhammad Ibrahim Soliman
  • 34. Hussain Eid Salmi
  • 35. Hassan Sallam Hassan Sallam
  • 36. Eid Shatiumy Hassan
  • 37. Soliman Salem Soliman Amer
  • 38. Saed Selim Salman

  • 44. Salman Alian Abu Garir
