RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is refusing to release Palestinian prisoner Shadi Abul Hussein despite ending his seven-year sentence on 31/8/2010, a Palestinian human rights group said.

The prisoners’ center for studies said in a statement on Monday that Abul Hussein, 34, was living with his family in Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, at the time of his arrest. The IOA claims that he did not obtain a Palestinian identity card and thus could not return to the Strip.

It added that the Negev prison administration, where the prisoner is held, threatened him with solitary confinement or transfer to another prison in the event he continued his strike. The IOA proposed deporting Abul Hussein to other countries such as Yemen or Lebanon.

The center appealed to the Ramallah ministry of prisoners, the Red Cross and other official and non-governmental organizations to pressure the IOA into allowing him to return to his family.
