, Index number: MDE 30/015/2006

Political prisoner Mohammed Akrout has been on hunger strike since 7 June 2006 to demand his release from prison and to protest against his conditions of imprisonment, denial of medical care and harassment by the prison authorities in the 9 avril prison in Tunis. He is very weak as a result of his hunger strike, and his family have been refused permission to see him. They are extremely concerned for his safety and wellbeing.
