2. He will also have specialized attention for his health condition broken by the hunger strike. “his momentary transfer to a hospital of the Public Health Network is accepted, so that the specialty doctors do an exhaustive job of the clinical picture in order to stabilize it.” After these revisions, youmust return to the prison of Latacunga.
