#PalHunger | Gaza government calls for the release of Ayman Sharawna

Note from occpal: Previously by Israel released prisoners received a Presidential Pardon. Also called Amnesty or Clemency by law to restore ones civil rights and being totally pardoned for the (alleged) crimes if even in the case of Palestinians’ ever charged before at all. Re-arresting pardoned prisoners without any charge is a severe violation of human and civil rights.

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a letter to “Peter Maurer,” the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross, asking him to pressure the Israeli occupation for the release of captive Ayman Sharawna and to form a committee to investigate the prisoners and detainees’ conditions in Israeli jails.

The ministry also called on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League, human rights and international humanitarian organizations, and the head of the Red Cross, to shoulder their responsibilities toward the Palestinian prisoners and detainees and to pressure on the Israeli occupation for their release from Israeli jails.

The ministry held the occupation authorities and the prison administration fully responsible regarding Sharawna’s arrest and the deterioration of his health.

Sharawna is a liberated prisoner who was released in Wafa al-Ahrar deal in October 2011, but he was re-arrested by the occupation on January 31 of this year and turned him to administrative detention without charge or trial.

Sharawna has launched his own hunger strike since early July of this year; demanding his freedom and release from the Israeli prisons, and protesting against his re-arrest and his health deterioration, and protesting the Israeli bargains to deport him from his city.

The striker prisoner suffers a very critical health condition, suffering from head pain and frequent blackouts limiting his ability to remember.

“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.
