Noelia Cotelo Riveiro, la compañera presa que denunciaba recientemente abusos sexuales y malos tratos a manos de los carcleros de la prisión de Brieva, inició, 1 de noviembre, una huelga de hambre en protesta por lo que le ha sucedido.
Entre la noche del 23 y 24 de Octubre se despertó cuando uno de los carceleros la estaba sobando mientras dormía. Al día siguiente mientras hablaba con su madre y le contaba lo ocurrido, los carceleros se acercaron para que colgara, finalmente le arrancaron el teléfono de las manos y le rompieron la muñeca, desde entonces hasta la mañana siguiente le tuvieron esposada a la cama de su celda.
