The kins of the political prisoners had informed the president that if their kins were not released by the end of September they start a fasting campaign. They have pointed out a pathetic case with regard to the destiny of political prisoners:
The wife of a political prisoner had gone mad due to prolonged separation from her husband and admitted to hospital. The husband, a political prisoner, had appealed to the court for the sale of his kidneys to meet the medical expenditure and his court expenditure.
We are not asking for any help or aid schemes. we are calling for the release of our kins jailed contravening laws of this country, they had said in their letter.
