A woman prisoner who is on a hunger strike for already 10 days at the “Abovyan” penitentiary institution was not visited by any public authority’s representative, besides her Advocate.
Today the Advocate of “The Foundation Against the Violation of Law” NGO Ara Gharagyozyan visited his client Sonia Malumyan in the “Abovyan” penitentiary institution of the Minister of Justice, who is on a hunger strike for already 10 days. Sonia Malumyan’s requirement is to move to an open prison. But the Allocation Commission rejected the prisoner to replace to an open prison by baseless argumentations.
