#PalHunger | Israel releases lawyer Shereen el-Issawi straight into house arrest so she can’t attend brother’s trial


Quds Media Center – Agencies

Palestinian human rights sources in occupied Jerusalem have reported that the city’s Magistrates’ Court has released lawyer Shereen El-Issawi on bail, only to place her under house arrest. She is the sister of hunger striker Samer El-Issawi, and her confinement at home means that she will be unable to attend his trial. Samer is in the fifth month of his hunger strike.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Forum in Jerusalem explained that the decision to release Shereen mentions specifically the ban on her attending the trials of any of her brothers, as well as Samer’s, for a period of six months.

The Forum’s lawyer, Mofeed El-Hajj, revealed that the court also decided to drop the new charge levelled against Samer El-Issawi for allegedly assaulting police officers who were transporting him to court.

“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.
