[ PIC 31/10/2012 – 12:47 PM ]

TUBAS, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner Odai Jihad Mahfouz al-Kilani from Tubas Governorates launched his open hunger strike protesting against the extension of his administrative detention.

Al-Kilani said in a letter from Megiddo prison that after spending 19 months in administrative detention, the court refused to release him, and renewed his administrative detention in the same day of his supposed release.

He declared his hunger strike until his release, demanding to raise the issue of administrative detainees in light of the Prison Service’s violation of its agreements.

Israeli Prisons Service (IPS) in Megiddo prison transferred him to solitary confinement after he declared the strike.

“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.
