The BPRA announced Palfreeman ended his fast on Thursday, as he had been given permission to receive a visit from his family and to give media interviews.

"Jock Palfreeman has ended his hunger strike today on its 33rd day," the union said in a statement on Facebook.

"The reasons for this are personal. On one hand, this weekend he will be visited by his family, travelling all the way from Australia. On the other - he wants to be able to speak with the media who have contacted the prison requesting interviews."

Mr Angelov said his client had been sacked from his prison job, banned from receiving visitors and denied access to phone cards to contact the outside world.

At one point, his lawyer claimed, Palfreeman was also moved from a low-security facility to the Sofia Prison hospital's infectious disease unit, where he was kept with tuberculosis patients in an attempt at "deliberate infection".
