Thar­rawaddy jail hunger strike to be tem­po­rar­ily halted

Mizzima Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The hunger strike at Thar­rawaddy jail by stu­dents de­mand­ing the release of stu­dents and po­lit­i­cal pris­on­ers will be sus­pended from 17 Novem­ber.

Two of the main hunger strik­ers, Ko Aung Hmine San and Ko Myo Myat San, have been taken to Yan­gon hos­pi­tal due to the se­ri­ous con­di­tion of their health.

They have both agreed to tem­po­rar­ily stop the strike as did fel­low hunger strik­ers Ko Aung Myint Han, Ko Thein, Ko Ye Htut Lwin and Ko Dain Daung who are also be­ing held in Thar­rawaddy jail.

The move came as prom­i­nent monks in­volved in the Saf­fron revo­lu­tion and Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD urged them to stop the hunger strike.
