#FreeSarsakAndRikhawi | Barhoum: Political detention does not serve the national reconciliation

[ PIC 04/06/2012 – 12:24 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC) — The official spokesman for the Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum, held the PA responsible for the life of Abdullah Aker, a political prisoner in PA’s aljunied prison, regarding his deteriorating health following his ongoing hunger strike.

Barhoum affirmed in a press statement published by the Media department of Hamas Movement on Monday that the ongoing political arrests in the West Bank against Hamas members and supporters are against the Palestinian reconciliation.

He added that after the last Cairo agreement, there were no justifications for holding political detainees in the West Bank, demanding their immediate release and the end of political arrests.

The Hamas spokesman denounced the ongoing detention of Aker, a cadre in al-Qassam Brigades, and PA’s indifference concerning his open hunger strike, launched 9 days ago, in spite of all agreements and all the national calls to release him. Thus Barhoum held the PA fully responsible for the lives of Aker and all political prisoners.

Barhoum called on the sponsors of reconciliation and Public Freedoms Committee to intervene immediately and urgently to end the suffering of Aker, and to halt political arrests; because it will be the biggest obstacle facing reconciliation, as he said.
