The Jordanian activist Sumaya Abu Nabaa continues her hunger strike for 27th days in a row inside Juwaida prison in Amman to demand her release.
Abu Nabaa’s family said that her health condition had significantly, adding that she has lost a lot of weight and lost her ability to stand.
The family visited her yesterday, Friday, in Juwaida prison, where she is still facing pressure to end her strike.
Lawyer Abdel Qader Al-Khatib had stated that Abu Nabaa’s health condition was very poor and demanded the Juwaida prison administration to provide her with medical care.
He added that Abu Nabaa told her family that the prison administration had placed her with convicts in criminal cases, who threatened her of if she did not end her hunger strike.
He added that Abu Nabaa’s family holds the prison administration responsible for any developments in her health, psychological and physical condition.
Abu Nabaa was arrested last July from the street, following an appeal court order to imprison her for a year on charges of stirring strife, a charge that the Jordanian authorities use as a pretext for arresting and prosecuting its opponents.
