De Juana's Health at Risk

An update on Basque political prisoner Iñaki de Juana.

It was published by EITb:

Basque prisoner Iñaki de Juana Chaos' partner, Irati Aranzabal, affirmed for the public radio station Radio Euskadi that doctors told her the inmate runs the risk to die a sudden death.

At the time being, De Juana has his hands and feet tied and has been fitted a catheter to feed him against his will.

Likewise, Aranzabal said doctors assured "the risk" of Iñaki de Juan Chaos' death "is there."

That is why she demanded "to start to do something now, because no one can stand this situation." After noting that she doesn't want "a coffin at home," she reminded that the situation of the prisoner "is very serious" and demanded his release, "because it's time for him."

Iñaki de Juana Chaos is on the 37th day of his second hunger strike in a few months to protest the 12-year sentence he was passed for writing two opinion articles in the Basque daily Gara.
