#PalHunger | Urgent appeal to Morsi to press Israel to release detainees swapped for Shalit

Note from occpal: Previously by Israel released prisoners received a Presidential Pardon of Peres. 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 rights.

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Palestinian hunger striker Ayman Al-Sharawna appealed to Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi to personally intervene to pressure Israel to release the Palestinian ex-detainees who had been swapped for an Israeli soldier last year.

In a letter addressed to the Egyptian president, Sharawna complained that the Israeli regime re-jailed him along with many other Palestinians who had been released as part of the Egyptian-brokered swap deal.

Sharawna, who has been on hunger strike for 129 days and now he is in Ramla jail hospital, urged Morsi to save them from their suffering and Israel’s extortion.

He explained that the Israeli jailers blackmailed them into accepting their lives as prisoners for life or exiles in other places away from their homes, adding the prisoners chose to go on hunger strike to protest their unjust detention and such extortion policy.

He told a lawyer sent by the ministry of prisoners’ affairs that the Israeli policy of re-jailing the ex-detainees who were released in exchange for soldier Gilad Shalit is utter dishonesty and a way to circumvent its Egyptian-mediated agreement with the Palestinian side.

“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.
