#PalHunger | Deterioration in health status of hunger striking prisoner Ayman Sharawna

[ PIC 12/09/2012 – 11:44 AM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The health status of prisoner Ayman Ismail Sharawna, who has launched a hunger strike since over 70 days, continues to deteriorate, reported Palestinian Prisoner Society on Tuesday.

The PPS noted that Sharawna has lost the ability to move his left foot, and has been suffering from visual impairment in his right eye, kidney problems, and backache.

It said in a press statement issued on Tuesday: “Sharawna told the PPS’s lawyer that Ramle prison hospital administration detains him in solitary confinement and that it emptied his room from all electrical appliances”.

Sharawna also added that he demanded, for many times, providing treatment for the aches from which he has been suffering, in vain, and that he has been also refusing to take any kind of vitamins.

Captive Sharawna was serving a 38-year imprisonment when he was released under “Wafa al-Ahrar” prisoner exchange deal after serving 10 years in Israeli jails. He was re-arrested from his home in al-Khalil at the end of last January to be held 6 months under administrative detention.

“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.
