Those who fell ill under prison conditions, pregnant women and women with babies were the most painful victims of Tenkil. Their treatments were disrupted, their access to hospital and health services was denied, and their release was stopped. Babies who died in the womb, imprisoned patients who got cancer were not released for months and years. Then came diseases and deaths.
