#PalHunger | Rights group urges France to have Palestinian hunger strikers released

[ PIC 09/06/2012 – 11:12 AM ]

PARIS, (PIC)– The Human rights association appealed to the French government to urgently intervene with the Israeli regime to have two hunger strikers released from its jails.

In a statement on Friday, the association said prisoner Mahmoud Sarsak and Akram Al-Raikawi have been on hunger strike for long days in protest at their detention administratively without any charge, and both of them are now in a very life-threatening health condition.

The association demanded Israel to respect the understandings it had reached with the hunger strikers regarding the improvement of their incarceration conditions and its pledge of not extending the prison terms of administrative detainees.

Its statement noted that Israel has violated several times its recent agreement with representatives of the hunger strikers by its persistence in extending the administrative detention of prisoners without guilt and banning Gazan families from seeing their relatives in jail.

For its part, Al-Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights said an Israeli court extended for the third consecutive time the administrative detention of Palestinian prisoner Imad Rihan from Nablus city for six more months.

In a press release on Thursday, Ahrar center pointed out that Rihan was kidnapped last year at King Hussein bridge on his way to Jordan to attend the engagement party of his eldest daughter. He had already spent 13 years in Israeli jails without any charge.

His wife appealed through the center to human rights organizations to act to end the suffering of her husband and have him released from Shatta prison.

“Imad Rihan is a father of four boys and two girls and has spent a long time of his life away from his family,” his wife stated.
