Fakharany, 26, was deported to Wadi al-Natroun prison on Tuesday, along with his co-defendant Samhy Mostafa.
According to his sister, Fakharany stopped eating food since May 24, and has only been drinking water while observing the holy month of Ramadan. His hunger strike was in protest at the inhumane prison conditions at Aqrab.
“He told me that he had been living with two other people in a 2*2 metres prison cell, half of which was flooded with sewage water. It had a hole as a toilet. The bed was made of cement and it had a little pillow also made of cement. The toilet hole constantly released insects. He lost about 20 kilograms of his weight,” his sister wrote on Facebook.
