Iran: Political activist on hunger striker put on trial

The Iranian regime on Sunday tried a political prisoner on the fortieth day of his hunger strike, according to Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran.

Political prisoner Houshang Davoudi was summoned to a court chaired by Salavati.

Mr. Davoudi reportedly had trouble walking on his own but had very high morale and condemned the regime’s rights violations and injustices, saying that Iran is a country that has no laws or proper due process.

Mr. Davoudi’s family had no prior knowledge of the trial. The regime sought to exploit the deteriorating health of Mr. Davoudi on his fortieth day of hunger strike to put him on trial.
