According to Malika Ismaili, her father contacted her yesterday by phone who told her that he had suspended his hunger strike and that the Moroccan authorities promised to meet his demands.
Brahim Ismaili, Saharawi political prisoner of the Gdeim Izik group started his hunger strike on the 1st of November and ended it 38 days later after being transported in a extremely critical situation to the Hospital in Rabat where he regained consciousness.
Mr. Ismaili had been repeatedly punished for demanding his most basic rights. He was put in total isolation and in a psych ward during his hunger strike.
The Moroccan authorities even went so far as to make a public statement where it is said that “the lack of positive interaction between some of those detainees and their obstinacy in making hunger strike warnings despite the institution’s willingness to facilitate their detention conditions and preserve their health, the administration had to apply the regulation appropriate against them “. Not specifying what the “appropriate regulation against them” is.
