#PalHunger | Saadat: the occupation did not commit to the agreement signed with prisoners

[ PIC 25/09/2012 – 12:18 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Secretary-General of Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Ahmed Saadat, denounced the continuation of Israeli prison administration’s policy of procrastination in implementing terms of the agreement officially signed under auspices of Egypt following the mass hunger strike waged by the captive movement last April.

Saadat, who had been sentenced to thirty years imprisonment, told the lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) during his visit to “Hadarim” prison, that this “policy is programmed to target the prisoners who were held in solitary confinement, in order to prevent them from meeting and living in the same prison, reported the media section of the PFLP.

Saadat pointed to the anger and indignation of prisoners due to many outstanding issues, which “the prison administration” has not adhered to, in spite of the agreement, most notably the end of all forms of isolation, noting that “the Israeli administration” is still isolating the captives Awad Saidi and Dirar Abu Sisi.

He also condemned the continuation of depriving prisoners from the West Bank and Gaza from their families’ visits, and said that the prison administration did not adhere to many other issues as the case of prisoner Hassan Safadi whose administrative detention was extended after the prison administration promised to release him.

Secretary-General of Popular Front added that the prison administration is still procrastinating and refuses to meet the rest of the demands, warning that this will not be the price for the prisoners’ hunger which lasted 28 days, as he said.

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.
