#PalHunger | Occupation violates captive agreement, bar visits

[ PIC 29/06/2012 – 10:57 AM ]

GAZA,(PIC)– Tadamun Foundation for Human Rights confirmed that the Prison Service administration postponed family’s visits to prisoners from Gaza until further notice.

Ahmed Betawi, a researcher at the foundation, stated that the Prison Service administration informed the prisoners’ leadership about the visits’ delay until further notice due to the recent escalation in Gaza strip.

He pointed out that this decision came as a punitive measure to the people of Gaza in response to rocket fire from Gaza.

The Prison Service administration is still procrastinating in the fulfillment of all the agreement’s items, including allowing prisoners’ visits from Gaza that have been reached in the recent deal that ended the captive movement strike on the beginning of May.

In the same context, the prisoner Mohammad Sabha told the Foundation lawyer that soldiers of Nahshon forces stormed sections in the Gilboa prison two days ago and began inspections and destruction of the prisoners’ rooms in search of Mobile Phones, being smuggled into the prison as the occupation claimed.

Sabha stressed that the occupation excuses for searching for cell phones to justify breaking into the prisoners’ sections in the prisons, and pointed out that these raids are often associated with destruction of the prisoners’ properties and stuffing dozens of prisoners in a narrow room.

Meanwhile, the occupation authority is supposed to release, on Thursday evening, the detainee Firas Jarar from the city of Nablus, after a whole year in administrative detention.

Jara was arrested on 28/6/2011 and was turned immediately to administrative detention, knowing that the prisoner was previously arrested in 1993 where he spent 16 years in occupation prisons.
