Ariel Ruiz Urquiola meets with a UN representative after eleven days on strike

This Thursday morning, Cuban biologist Ariel Ruiz Urquiola, for the first time after eleven days on a hunger and thirst strike, received a visit from the representative of the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Physical and Mental Health of the High Commissioner for United Nations.

The news was announced by the activist and friend of the opponent, Evelyn Calderón, who has been accompanying him during his peaceful protest.

The rapporteur, Tlaleng Mofokeng, is in South Africa, so that representative went in her place for an interview of more than an hour, Calderón said.

“The conclusion that can be derived from this meeting is that the alleged cases of medical torture committed against former university professor Omara Isabel Ruiz Urquiola and former scientific researcher of Molecular Biology, Dr. Ariel Ruiz Urquiola, will be submitted to the Health Rapporteur” , indicated the activist through Facebook.

This Thursday afternoon, Ariel Ruiz Urquiola will meet with one of the representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and with officials from the working group on arbitrary detentions.

For this reason, the scientist agreed to be hydrated with sodium chloride, in an outpatient service in front of the Palais Wilson in Geneva (Switzerland), where Urquiola has been on a hunger and thirst strike since last July 4.

Ruiz Urquiola went on strike with the aim of demanding the intervention of the United Nations in the face of the Cuban regime’s prohibition of his sister, the activist Omara Ruiz Urquiola, entering the island.

In addition to staying for all these days without ingesting food or water, the scientist also suppressed the medications of his HIV treatment, which was diagnosed almost three years ago, for which his life is in constant danger.
