[ PIC 07/05/2012 – 07:34 PM ]

NABLUS,(PIC)– Mahmoud Hassan, the lawyer of Addameer Foundation for Prisoners and Human Rights, met, on Sunday in Ramla prison hospital, the detainee Hassan Safadi who has been on hunger strike for 63 days.

Safadi, who came to the visit on a wheelchair because of his deteriorating health, told the lawyer that the prison hospital administration had forcefully given him a treatment without knowing what it is.

Safadi said that during his transfer to Ramla prison hospital, he was beaten by prison guards, and the prison doctor refused to examine the injuries sustained from the attack.

Meanwhile, the lawyer said that the captive Nidhal Shehadeh, 20 days on hunger strike, has been transferred from Ramla prison hospital to Assaf Harovih prison due to a severe abdominal pain.

Addameer expressed its deep concern about the way prison doctors had given the detainee a treatment against his will in strict violation to the principles of medical ethics.

Addameer pointed out that this measure is in total violation to the guidelines of the World Medical Association and even to the Israeli Medical Association which allows giving treatment against the striker’s wish when he loses his mental capacity to make decisions only and this is not Safadi’s case.
