#PalHunger | Hunger-striker Samer Issawi’s hearing postponed until next month

Maan News Agency | Jan 2, 2013


83563_345x230[1]RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — An Israeli military court postponed a hearing on the case of hunger-striker Samer Issawi for one month on Wednesday, prisoners society lawyer Jawad Bulous said.

Ofer court held administrative session on Wednesday and will hear Issawi’s case in a three-judge session in one month.

Issawi, from East Jerusalem, has been on hunger strike for 155 days. He arrived in court by wheelchair looking frail, Bulous said.

He is under constant pressure from Israeli prison officials to stop his strike, using flimsy promises, the lawyer added. He said Issawi’s case was now a public issue rather than a personal one.

At the hunger-striker’s last hearing in December, his family were blocked by Israeli forces at the court when they tried to greet Samer, and later denied access to the court, prisoners groups said.

Issawi’s sister Shireen was detained by Israeli police from their Isawiya home the following day, and a protest tent in support of Issawi was removed.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
