Sit-in in front of Muqataa against Arab silence regarding prisoners’ issue

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.

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Dozens of citizens protested in front of the Muqataa in Ramallah on Saturday afternoon, at the moment of the arrival of Secretary-General of the Arab League Nabil al-Araby and Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mahmoud Kamel.

The protesters said they aim to send a message to the authority of Ramallah and the Arab League stressing the need to support the hunger striking prisoners, especially Samer al-Issawi and Ayman Sharawna, as they are an integral part of the Palestinian cause.

They held Egypt responsible for the prisoners’ conditions, being the sponsor of the prisoners’ exchange deal and the party responsible for the protection of the ex-detainees, who have been re-arrested.

The demonstrators raised photos of the hunger striking prisoners and banners demanding freedom for all captives.

One of the protesters denounced the silence and inaction by the Arab League and PA’s leadership toward the issue of the prisoners, and said “PA must form a Palestinian delegation to go to Egypt, in order to find a solution to the captives’ issue.”

“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.
