KHPG representative not allowed into Penal Colony No. 89



Andriy Didenko, Programme Coordinator for the Kharkiv Human Rights Group, who had received permission on Tuesday to visit the penal institution where prisoners have been on hunger strike following the deployment of a Special Forces unit on 5 July, was on Wednesday not allowed into the colony by the administration.  This means that since the events of 5 July, when 15 prisoners are believed to have been injured, no human rights worker has been allowed to speak to the prisoners or examine the place.

It is also believed that some of the prisoners have stopped their hunger strike.
