#PalHunger | Sick prisoner announces open hunger strike

Maan News Agency | June 19, 2012

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — A sick detainee is on open hunger strike in protest over medical neglect by the Israeli prison service, a prisoner representative said Tuesday.

Ismail Radaida, who represents detainees at Ramle prison clinic, told Palestinian Prisoner Society lawyer Jawad Boulus that Reyad al-Amour decided to go on hunger strike out of despair over Israeli prison doctors’ refusal to treat him.

Al-Amour, from Bethlehem, has been requesting that Israeli doctors replace a broken device needed to treat his heart disease for two years, Boulus said in a statement.

Prison doctors refuse to give al-Amour medication and he has fainted many times, causing bruising across his body, the lawyer said.

Radaida said detainees were concerned for al-Amour because he was seriously ill before going on hunger strike

The Palestinian Prisoner Society has requested al-Amour’s transfer to hospital for medical tests, Boulus said, warning that deliberate medical neglect could lead to the detainee’s death.
