In a statement, the doctors chosen by Dimitris Koufontinas complain that it is impossible to visit the detainee in the hospital where he is being treated, since the commander of the General Hospital. Lamia refuses due to coronavirus to provide them with a travel permit.
The entire statement of the doctors:
"The health condition of the hunger and thirst striker Dimitris Koufontina is extremely critical, as he developed acute renal failure and there is a risk of falling into a coma or sudden death.
Due to the criticality of the situation, as doctors of the personal choice of D. Koufontinas, who we have repeatedly visited in Domokou Prison, and in the Pathological Clinic and in the ICU, we asked the administration of the General Hospital. Lamia to go to the hospital. The colleagues of the ICU of the General Hospital also agree with our request. Lamia.
Despite our repeated efforts to secure the relevant permit, this has not been possible.
Yesterday, the commander of the hospital, Andreas Kolokythas, apparently at the behest of the government, refused - under the pretext of the protection measures for COVID 19 - to send us the travel certificates.
Today, he does not answer our calls on his personal phone, in his office and in e-mails. The only time we managed to pick up the phone, a call was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stating that it would inform us later, which did not happen.
We call the Ministry of Health and the commander of the General Hospital. Lamia to stop the tactical tactics and allow our visit to D. Koufontinas, sending the certificates of movement.
