Over 2,300 inmates and detainees in Lithuanian prisons have gone on a hunger strike to protest against new rules limiting the range and amount of food products and other items they can buy and have in possession, as well as restricting the time of use of personal computers.

"Management of correctional facilities involved are holding meetings with prisoners, explaining the reasons and goals behind the changes to internal rules. Representatives of the Prison Department will be soon involved in the explanatory work," the department said in a statement on Wednesday.

Meanwhile Audrė Miseikienė, spokeswoman for the Prison Department, told BNS inmates in some correctional facilities still had lunch on Wednesday, despite their written statements on their participation in the hunger strike, and also stocked up food ahead of the protest action by spending LTL 480,000 (over EUR 277,000).
