Nasrin Sotoudeh's husband: "Nasrin Continues to Be On Hunger Strike"
Voice of Freedom :After several weeks of being banned from visits, Reza Khandan was permitted to have a cabin visit with his wife Nasrin Sotoudeh.
Nasrin Sotoudeh who was incarcerated in solitary confinement for nineteen days before being moved back to the General Ward has said, "I can not just sit and do nothing while they do what ever it is the please to my family and I."
Nasrin's husband Reza Khandan has written a post on his Facebook page about this visit, "She has lost a lot of weight and now weighs 43 Kilos (94.6 lbs). I gave her the messages from friends and supporters as much as I could.
I thought I may be able to convince her to break her hunger strike by giving her these messages. She said, "If I hadn't gone on a hunger strike they (the regime) had further plans for my family. Fabricating a case for a twelve year old child, just because of her mother is something I just can not digest." Says she, who has worked a lifetime defending children's rights.
In short, she is upset about these fabricated cases. I asked her how long is she planning to be on hunger strike? She replied, "I am on an open ended hunger strike; do you know what open ended means?" ... I said, "No I don't."
