More punitive measures against prisoners in Gilboa

NABLUS, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoners in Gilboa prison have been exposed to Israeli punitive measures since the beginning of the month of Ramadan, revealed a lawyer for Tadamun Foundation for Human Rights after visiting the detainees there.

Ahmed Beitawi, a researcher with the foundation, said that the prison administration of Gilboa informed the prisoners of its intention to withdraw the ventilators from some sections, which will increase their suffering, especially with the hot weather.

Beitawi quoted Jerusalemite captive Malik Najah Bakirat, who has been detained for 11 years and sentenced to 19 years, as saying that the prison administration also refused to provide the prisoners with their necessities for the month of Ramadan, noting the acute shortage of some food items such as the fresh vegetables.

Bakirat pointed out that he suffers from a neurological problem and that as a result of the misdiagnosis of his illness and the inappropriate medication he used, he became affected with vitiligo, and stressed that medical negligence is a consistent policy pursued by the Israeli prison service against the sick prisoners.

Bakirat stated that the prison administration in Gilboa had recently suppressed and transferred a number of prisoners to other jails, as what happened with captive Mohammed Arif, who was transferred to Nafha prison.
