[ PIC 12/11/2012 – 06:06 PM ]

TUNIS, (PIC)– Majed Al-Zeer, Chairman of The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), has praised the efforts made during the Palestinian prisoners’ conference which ended in Sunday under the auspices of the Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki.

He stated that the conference expresses the importance of the Palestinian cause for the people and the governments of the Arab spring.

He praised the positive atmosphere that prevailed between the different Palestinian parties who came from the West Bank, Gaza, 1948 occupied territories, and the Arab and European Diaspora and between the Tunisian civil society organizations.

“The international Conference on Palestinian prisoners in Tunisia represents one of stages of the Arab spring regarding the Palestinian issue,” he added.

Al-Zeer criticized the absence of the Palestinian Authority in the conference, and described it as “a fatal political flaw”. When we talk about the prisoners’ issue, we must forget about all political interests,” according him.

All the participants in the conference have agreed to form a special committee to follow-up the conference’s resolutions at the legal, humanitarian, and political levels, he confirmed.

The Tunisian Presidency emphasized on the need to translate the conference’ resolutions into actions through the formation of a monitoring committee for the conference’s outcomes, he added.

“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.
