BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli Prison Service spokeswoman Sivan Weizman on Thursday evening denied a PA official’s announcement that hunger-striking prisoner Samer al-Barq is poised for deportation to Egypt.
“Its not happening today, and not tomorrow,” she told Ma’an.
Prisoners Minister Issa Qaraqe said earlier that al-Barq, on his 122nd day of hunger strike, will be released to a hospital in Egypt within hours.
Palestinian Prisoners Society lawyer Jawad Bulus told Ma’an that the deal was still in place and only technical obstacles stood in the way of his immediate release.
The society’s director Qadura Fares said all sides were waiting for a response from Egypt on the technicalities of his deportation from Israeli jail.

“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.
