Aqrab Prison authorities have transferred Mahmoud Barbari, who has been on total hunger strike, to the prison hospital after a sudden deterioration in his health. His wife has been prevented from visiting him in hospital and has been refused any details about his condition.

Mahmoud Barbari, aged 36 years, is a human development coach and has been detained since August 16, 2013. He has been detained for nearly three years under pre-trial detention, and despite this period surpassing the maximum period of pre-trial detention, he has not been released.

Mahmoud began a hunger strike in Aqrab Prison on February 24, 2016. He is married and has three daughters (11-year old Rowan; 9-year old Rana; and 7-year old Ru’a).
