Five Azerbaijani political activists, who were recently sentenced to 9 years imprisonment, have been on hunger strike since July 13 in Tabriz prison.

Latif Hasani, Behboud Qolizadeh, Shahram Radmehr, Ayat Mehralibaylu and Mahmoud Fazli have started their hunger strike as a sign of protest to the confirmation of sentence made against them by the Tabriz Islamic Revolutionary Court.

These people are charged on "violation of national security and carrying out anti-government propaganda activities".

Mahmoud Fazli has been transferred to the prison hospital, Shahram Radmehr's brother Sajjad Radmehr told Trend on July 17.

"Shahram Radmehr and Behboud Qolizadeh are also in bad physical condition", he added.
