Hunger Strikers Must Leave Beds To See Lawyers

The Israeli Prison Service has confirmed that it is withholding interviews between hunger striking prisoners and their legal representatives as this privilege is conditional on prisoners physically getting up from their beds to request consultation.

Adalah and other human rights organisations have stated their intention to go to the Israeli High court if the situation is not settled promptly.

Israeli daily, Haaretz, have quoted a prison service spokesman who confirmed that prisoners “need to physically get up and tell the prison authorities they want to attend a meeting”.

Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike are currently receiving treatment in Ramle prison where 20 protestors were arrested by the Israeli Military on Thurday May 3rd during a protest in support of those on hunger strike.

Thaer Halahla and Bilal Thiab, who started their Hunger strike 65 days ago, both have deteriorating health posing a direct threat to their lives, according to the Israeli branch of Physicians For Human Rights who visited the detainees earlier this week.
