20 convicts of the Nubarashen prison sentenced for life plan to
start a strike tomorrow unless their demands will be considered,
News Armenia reports.

The convicts prepared three letters to the president, offices of the
EU and Red Cross. They demand their cases to be reconsidered with
account of amendments to the Armenian Criminal Code, making their
imprisonment last 15-20 years.

They said that 20 more prisoners would join their strike unless their
demands are considered.
