GAZA, (PIC)– Minister of Detainees and Ex-detainees, Dr. Atallah Abu Subbah, urged Egypt to intervene to save the life of isolated prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi after the occupation Court extended his solitary confinement for six months and prevented him from talking with other prisoners.
Abu Subbah said in a statement to “Alray online”: “We strongly condemn the extension of prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi’s solitary confinement by the occupation court, and we consider it as a death penalty, especially that Dhirar suffers from several health problems.”
Abu Sisi disappeared in February 2011 while traveling on a train in Ukraine and Israel later announced that it was holding him at Ashkelon prison.
The captive from Gaza, who holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, has been jailed in solitary confinement since his arrest.
Abu Sisi suffers from anemia and needs treatment. He also suffers from troubles in vision in his left eye, and hearing problems in his right ear, amid a policy of medical neglect adopted by the Israeli Prison Service.
For its part, the Euro-Mediterranean Observatory for Human Rights denounced the Israeli authorities’ resolution to extend Abu Sisi’s solitary confinement and said that it aims to cover up the involvement of European bodies in the offense of the abduction of Abu Sisi from the Ukrainian territories.
The European human rights organization revealed in a statement on Thursday evening that delaying conducting a transparent investigation on the kidnapping of Dhirar raises further suspicion and doubts amongst the family of the kidnapped and the human rights institutions that have been following up his case.
The observatory stressed that the information it had received from Abu Sisi’s wife, the Ukrainian Ministries of Interior and Foreign Affairs and European official bodies clearly show that “there are parties colluding with the Israeli authorities in order to cover up the circumstances of the abduction and detention of Abu Sisi.”
