Prisoner Mutassim Raddad in poor shape because of bowel cancer

[ PIC 10/12/2012 – 05:36 PM ]

TULKAREM, (PIC)– The prisoner committee of the national and Islamic forces said Palestinian prisoner Mutassim Raddad, 28, suffers from very serious health problems and acute intestinal bleeding.

The prisoner committee added in a press release on Monday that Raddad, in detention since 2006, was admitted to the Ramla prison infirmary where the doctors diagnosed him with bowel cancer and anemia.

The doctor had to give him units of blood to make up the shortfall he suffered from because of the ongoing bleeding.

As a result, the committee held the Israeli regime and its prison authority fully responsible for the life of prisoner Raddad and the lives of other prisoners who are in very bad shape because of their hunger strike.

It appealed to international human rights groups and the Red Cross to urgently intervene and save the lives of Raddad and many hunger strikers who are struggling with death.

“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.
