Reza Shahabi on hunger strike and medical treatment refusal

On December 15th Reza Shahabi announced his medical treatment refusal in protest against the mistreatment by the prison warder and also reckless disregard of prison authorities about deterioration of his health condition. 
A day later, he informed his wife and daughter that he has begun a hunger strike and will continue it until he is released on bail for medical treatment outside the prison.
His wife said in an interview that he even stopped taking his blood pressure medication, which is an extra hazard to him.
