Rome, December 17 - There are concerns that the
life of Marco Pannella, the historic leader of Italy's Radical
Party, is in danger as he continues a week-long
thirst-and-hunger strike over conditions in the nation's
prisons.
Doctors at the Rome hospital where the 82-year-old is
staying said Sunday that he was in danger of suffering kidney
failure and cardiovascular complications.
Melania Rizzoli, a centre-right MP who went to see him on
Monday, said she had not been allowed to because doctors feared
the emotion of the visit could be "fatal".
Pannella is calling for an amnesty to stop chronic
overcrowding in Italy's jails and for prisoners to have the
right to vote.
He has staged a number of thirst-and-hunger strikes in the
past to protest about a variety of issues.
