Another two Gonabadi prisoners in Iran have begun a hunger strike in protest against the treatment of their lawyers, who are currently being held in solitary and are reportedly being mistreated.


Alireza Roshan and Mostafa Abdi, in Evin Prison, have told their families that they are beginning a hunger strike to denounce the "violent and insulting treatment" of their lawyers and to express solidarity with the two jailed Gonabadi dervishes in Shiraz, who have already been on hunger strike for more than 694 days to demand the release of the lawyers from solitary confinement.

Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri also began refusing water on March 21 and, according to their families, are now at death's door.

The lawyers for the Gonabadi dervishes were arrested 70 days ago, after they protested the proceedings against all jailed dervishes and the actions of Judge Salavati.
