Zakka Starts Another Hunger Strike to Protest Continued Delay of Case Review

The following statement was issued on behalf of Mr. Nizar Zakka and his family by Mr. Zakka’s attorney in the United States, Mr. Jason Poblete, regarding the continued delays by Iran in reviewing his case:

“Nizar has informed us that, to protest the continued delays in reviewing his case, the lack of justice and other matters, he has started another hunger strike. This is the fourth time that Nizar has had to resort to a hunger strike to raise awareness of his plight. While his spirit is very strong, his health continues to suffer. As has been the case since he was unlawfully detained on September 18, 2015, and later falsely accused, Nizar continues to strongly maintain his innocence. Nizar and his family ask that all parties who can help, to please do so.”
