GENEVA, (PIC)– Under the slogan “working for justice,” various European human rights organizations are preparing to hold the first international conference on the rights of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons.

The conference will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, March 11-12, 2011 in order to pool the efforts of many Palestinian and European members of parliament and human rights activists to support the issue of Palestinian prisoners.

The conference will be organized by Rights for All organization, the European network to support the rights of the Palestinian prisoners (UFree) and North-South 21. These organizations are aiming to combine their efforts to work against the brutal actions against Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons.

Director of the European network to support the rights of Palestinian prisoners (UFree) Mohammed Hamdan said that Palestinian prisoners live in harsh incarceration conditions in Israeli prisons and they are exposed to illegal and inhumane punishment methods.

The first day of the conference will include round table discussions by the representatives of the human rights council, while the second day will include five elaborated sessions that will cover the subject in detail.
