Despite the extreme heat of the province, especially during the summer, the abductees and the disappeared inside the prisons of Horthy, suffer severe and inhumane, they are in narrow cells and without electricity to ease the heat they suffer.
Recently, we have received a number of repeated requests from the families of the abductees of increasing intransigence against the abductees in the month of Ramadan and depriving them even of breakfast, and the food visits that attend their families.
Although there are about 30 prisons in the province, the militia did not allow parents to visit their sons.
