Rome, December 18 - Doctors say Marco Pannella, the
historic leader of Italy's Radical Party, will destroy his
kidneys and his overall health if he continues his
thirst-and-hunger strike.
"You are now witnessing the deliberate development of renal
(kidney) damage," doctors at Pannella's Rome hospital said
Tuesday.
They provided a detailed update of his condition, adding
that Pannella has refused treatment and is developing severe
exhaustion as well as organ damage.
"The recovery of hydration and adequate caloric intake
cannot be delayed any further".
Pannella, 82, is striking to back his demands for an
amnesty to stop chronic overcrowding in Italy's jail; and that
prisoners be given the right to vote.
He has staged a number of thirst-and-hunger strikes in the
past to protest about a variety of issues.
