#PalHunger | IPS denies visits to the strikers Kaadan and Ezzedine

[ PIC 23/12/2012 – 07:42 PM ]

JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli Prison Service (IPS) informed Red Cross in Jenin that the hunger strikers Tarek Kaadan and Jafar Ezzedine are banned from the scheduled visit on Monday as a punishment for continuing their hunger strike that was launched since a month ago.

The father of the captive Kaadan said that his son’s lawyer has visited Tareq in Megiddo prison “section 8” and told him that his son’s health is stable, where he suffers wasting of the muscles, stressing that he continues his hunger strike.

He added that the Court of Appeals in Ofer will hold a hearing next Thursday to decide on Tareq and Jafar Ezzedine’s issues.

For her part, the wife of the captive Jafar Ezzedine, 41, confirmed that the Red Cross told them to cancel their planned visit on Monday, because Ezzedine is punished by IPS for his continued open hunger strike.

Jafar Ezzedine and Tarek Kaadan, from Arraba village in Jenin, have been detained since 22 November 2012, where they went on an open hunger strike for 26 days respectively.

“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.
