According to the latest information the physical condition of three of the detainees is very serious and worrying. Esmail Khodkam, Mohsen Hakimi and Hamid Tanoomand have suffered from bleeding in the stomach because of the hunger strike. Taking the latest worrying situation into consideration, the worker activists and workers' organisations should increase even more their pressure on international associations and bodies for the immediate and unconditional release of the detainees.
