A hunger strike was launched in North Nicosia Central Prison in protest of the allegedly shabby living conditions

The prison currently houses 378 inmates and reportedly 88 prisoners have gone on hunger strike, ‘Havadis’ reports.

The newspaper publish a report on the unsanitary and cramped living conditions, created by incarcerating people in a building which is too small for the number of inmates.
