Greece: Hunger and Thirst Striker Kostantinos Giagtzoglou Already Lost 10% of his Body Weight

While a very particular and specific commitment was made by the Ministry of Justice on Saturday, regarding a response to the appeal of the hunger and thirst striker Kostantinos Giagtzoglou, that was supposed to be given today, nothing was actually done.

The MoJ is silent and has not given any explanation to Giagtzoglou’s attorney, G.Kakarnias, who has been trying to communicate with the MoJ since this morning. There has been no answer. No council convened despite the very clear and specific committment the competent authorities made.

This was clearly a deceit which aims at the murder of K. Giagtzoglou.

The comrade’s health has deteriorated, he weighs only 55kg and he has not had any water for the second consecutive day. He is housed in a cold cell, in a prison that does not offer any healthcare nor employs a doctor, where a man died of dental inflammation a few days back.

It is generally acknowledged that when a hunger and thirst strike is attempted, there is a grave danger of sudden death. Despite that, the MoJ has waited hour after hour and still refuses to respond to Dino’s fair demand.

Are the Ministry and the Transfer Council ready to be responsible for a man’s death, just because he requested a transfer to a different facility?

Nothing is clear and NOBODY knows when the Council of Transfers will convene. We are all on guard because the time is critical and complications could happen at any moment.

The only thing that’s certain is that the comrade won’t take a step back…

Kostantinos Giagtzoglou Already Lost 10% of his Body Weight

This afternoon (Monday February 26) at 17:00 the comrade was taken to the doctor’s office at Larissa prison due to an intense feeling of weakness. The examination he went through included the following, which were submitted in his nedical file:

Weight:55 kg

Blood pressure: 133/77

Glucose:83

Kostantinos has already lost 10% of his body weight within a short time, which was also affected by the adversity he experieced due to his abduction and transfer to Larissa without being offered a bottle of water at least. The comrade is very strong mentally but physically, due to his abstention from water for the past 48 hours, he appears very weak and is shivering.

More info will follow if his condition changes.

VICTORY TO THE COMRADE’S STRUGGLE
