“My brother is one of the prisoners who demanded 15-year imprisonment. Over 80 prisoners held protest actions and went on hunger strikes demanding it. At the end my brother found the way out by attempting suicide. Five days ago he injured himself with sharp instrument at the region of his heart. As we were informed from the jail, his health is serious. In early month we met with him and he told us that he will injure himself, but we did not believe,� she said.
