Greece: Letter from Hunger Striking Political Prisoner Dimitris Koufontinas
May 10, 2019by actforfreedom
To the Director
I accepted to be transferred to your hospital, after pressure, in order to have an appropriate nursing environment (support of nursing staff), as I am on hunger strike since 2/5.
My living conditions here, in the warehouse of the 2nd basement of the hospital building, next to the morgue, are inhuman treatment and torture.
For this I request that I immediately be transferred to an appropriate hospital clinic so that there is a presence of nursing assistants in meeting the basic individual needs.
I ALSO DECLARE
I do not want to stay in your hospital any more and I declare and sign with all responsibility that I want to go back to the EACN Cassavete in my detention area , where I will continue the hunger strike.
Until then, I will not accept any visit and medical attention from any doctor or nurse of your hospital, which I consider to be premature and offensive in advance, and I declare that any such effort is a violent and forced hospitalization that can not be done without my will, at which I do not consent.
This statement is in no way directed against medical and nursing staff who are conscientiously doing their job in these adverse conditions.
