She pointed out that the cell itself was very narrow, the size of a toilet, surrounded by human waste and pungent odors from all sides, in addition to being filled with insects.

Tupac’s mother said that the prison authorities prevented her from visiting her son despite her begging and waiting with his younger siblings from eight in the morning until three in the afternoon on the eve of “Eid al-Fitr”, and did not allow her visitation until last Sunday.

It also denounced the prison administration’s not giving them all 45 minutes for visitation given to them by the prosecution.
