CAIRO: Political activist Ahmed Doma’s digestion problems worsened amid the absence of a concerned specialist, said activist Alaa Abdel Fatah on March 28 on his Facebook page.
Fatah added that Doma’s problem with his digestive system deteriorated after being subjected to intensive teargas during the past years, and because he started a hunger strike leading to a low blood sugar rate.
Fatah added that his refusal of a feeding tube and made his condition worse.
He noted that the digestive specialist at the hospital in Tora Prison has been absent since a month ago.
“We tried to equate him [Doma] to Mubarak’s [imprisoned] men who are staying at private hospitals, but no decision was released to refer his case to a hospital outside the prison,” Fatah.
Doma is one of three April 6 Youth Movement members, Ahmed Maher and Mohamed Adel, who were sentenced on Dec.22 to three years in prison and labor, in addition to a 50,000 EGP fine each, for breaching the protest law.
