#PalHunger | Israeli jailers to release prisoner Hasan Safadi Monday

[ PIC 29/10/2012 – 09:03 AM ]

NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli prison authority decided to release Palestinian prisoner Hasan Safadi who went on hunger strike for long days in protest at his administrative detention.

His family told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the administration of Hadarim jail told the lawyer in charge of his case that Safadi would be let go on Monday at Jabara checkpoint east of Tulkarem city.

Members from the family and dozens of his acquaintances will be waiting for him at the checkpoint until he is transported there from the jail.

Safadi went on long hunger strike twice after he was jailed on June 30, 2011, the first time was for 73 days and the second time was for 95 days.

Earlier on Sunday, the Israeli prison authority released prisoner Omar Abu Shalal from Nablus city.

Abu Shalal is one of the prisoners who went on hunger strike for long days in protest at their administrative detention.

According to the Palestinian prisoner society, Abu Shalal was administratively detained for 14 months.

There are about 308 Palestinians in administrative detention in Israeli prisons, according to the Israeli human rights group, B’Tselem.

Neither these administratively detained nor their lawyers are informed of the accusations or evidence against them. No charges are laid and no trial is held against them.

Administrative detention is used mainly by Israel against individuals not engaged in violent activities for security claims.

The European Union has criticized this Israeli violation of human rights, but Israel still ignores any appeals for ending such repressive policy against the Palestinians.

“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.
