Feminist School: Today, 11 Nov. 2010, Nasrin Sotoudehâ€™s husband, brother and sister were allowed to visit her for 10 minutes in Evin Prison.
This was the first time Reza Khandan, Nasrinâ€™s husband, could visit her after ten weeks. He told Feminist School, â€˜Nasrin informed us that she has ended her dry hunger strike as a courtesy to her friendsâ€™ request, however, she will keep her hunger strike for as long as the officials refuse her legal demands.
â€˜My wife is still in hunger strike and after nine days she is only drinking water following the requests from her lawyers and friendsâ€™, he added.
Mrs Sotoudeh mentioned in the visit that â€˜three different judiciary officials promised my release but none of them kept their promise. So I will continue my strike.â€™
Mr Khandan said, â€˜Nasrinâ€™s face was so gaunt I didnâ€™t recognize her. She weighed just 57kg before imprisonment and has dropped 13kilos in ten weeks. She went under IV therapy twice during this time.â€™
Nasrin Sotoudeh, defense lawyer and womenâ€™s right activist, was detained on 4 Sept. 2010 and started her hunger strike on 25 Sept. 2010, nine days of which was dry hunger strike.
