#PalHunger | Trial of al-Issawi postponed for a week

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 (also from the Wafa al Ahrar deal) without any charge is a severe violation of human rights.

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– An Israeli court in occupied Jerusalem decided on Thursday to postpone looking into the case of prisoner Samer al-Issawi, 30, from the town of Issawiya in occupied Jerusalem.

Issawi has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 150 days, in protest at his re-arrest after being released under the prisoner exchange deal, under which Hamas released the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange of 1027 Palestinian prisoners who were released from occupation jails.

The lawyer Shirin al-Issawi, prisoner Samer’s sister, considered that postponing the trial as part of the policy of procrastination, especially that the Israeli intelligence has failed to prove that Samer was guilty, and asserted that the court and the postponement have been used as means to extend the detention of her brother.

She accused the occupation of exposing her brother’s life to danger, pointing to his serious health condition due to his ongoing hunger strike.

“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.
