The announcement comes two weeks after Mr Ocalan saw his lawyers for a one hour meeting for the first time in nearly eight years.
He is currently being held in isolation on Imrali island and is denied visits from family members and his legal team.

The hunger strikes are set to continue. They demand all rights for prisoners to be applied to Ocalan. This means phone calls, letters, family visits and peace delegation visist to go ahead.
