URMIYE, — Four Kurdish prisoners who had been requested 5 billion tomans as bail for their release launched a hunger strike as they have no such a budget to play the bail.
The four are reported as Eli, Abubekir, Luqman Hemzeshuri, and Sediq Mistefayi who had recently been arrested by the state’s gunmen and held in Urmiye prison.
They were requested the amount of 5 billion tomans as bail for their release. They said since they are unable to pay such an amount, they have staged the hunger strike.
