Ahrar center appeals for releasing doctor Amjad Qabha from Israeli jail

PIC July 3, 2012

NABLUS, (PIC)– Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights appealed to medical associations and unions of physicians around the world to necessarily intervene to get Palestinian doctor Amjad Qabha released from Israeli jails, affirming that he is in detention for providing medical help to wounded persons.

Director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh said that doctor Qabha has been in jail for 10 years serving a sentence of 18 years on a charge of providing medical assistance to Palestinians classified as wanted by Israel.

Khafsh emphasized the need for an active role by the union of Palestinian physicians in defending Palestinian doctors in Israeli jails and keeping in touch with their families.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
