Health of Abdurrahman Lutfi, Labor Party leading figure, declined after he went on a hunger strike for more than 12 days in protest against his detention prior to April 6 strike.

Al-Marj prison administration has not yet informed the prosecution about his hunger strike.

This is not the first time for Lutfi to go on huger strike. He did it at Annattroun Valley’s prison for more than 45 days and at New Valley’s prison for more than 35 days. Sheikh Lutfi and his family place the responsibility of his poor health on the president and Minister of Interior.

Asmaa’, daughter of Sheikh Abdurrahman Lutfi, said that her father sees freedom more important than food and drink.

Her imprisoned husband, Hussein Taha Mohamed, will join the strike. She added that her father only drinks two cups of water; one before dawn break and the other after sunset. But his sense of patriotism fuels his patience, she told Ikhwanweb.
