Family, Lawyers, Advocates have not been allowed to visit Nadia in camp hospital.
As RAPSI reports from camp spokesman - Nadia Tolokooikova on hunger strike has been transferred from a medical ward of her penal colony to a hospital, penitentiary authorities said on Sunday.
A spokesman for the local penitentiary service department said Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, serving a two-year sentence over a so-called punk prayer protest in Moscow’s main cathedral last year, agreed to being transferred to hospital “for further screening of her health dynamics.”
Doctors currently estimate her health condition as “satisfactory,” the spokesman said.
Tolokonnikova, 23, announced her hunger strike last week. In an open letter published by news site Lenta.ru, she harshly criticized the prison’s labor and sanitary conditions and claimed that a vice warden had threatened her life.
On Friday, after five days of hunger strike, she was taken to a medical ward of her jail.
Her lawyer, Dmitry Dinze, said Friday that a request for Tolokonnikova to be transferred to a different prison had been denied. That same day a local official announced that the prison did not support her request for early release, an issue to later be decided in court.
The only sustenance that Tolokonnikova has allowed herself on her strike is water.
