Waed: Israel continues to prevent winter clothing for prisoners

[ PIC 06/01/2013 – 09:23 PM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– Waed association for the support of Palestinian prisoners confirmed that the Israeli authorities still prevents the basic requirements for the prisoners in the Israeli prisons and foremost their own winter clothing and for the sixth year in a row in flagrant violation of the prisoners’ rights.

Waed stated in a press release on Sunday that despite the onset of winter and the prisoners’ worsening living conditions, the Israeli occupation insists on dealing with prisoners without any humanity, pointing out to the association’s attempts to provide the prisoners with their winter clothing but it was in vain. The association said that it even tried to get these clothes to the prisoners through international humanitarian organizations but this failed because of the occupation obstinacy and the international organizations’ foot-dragging in following this file.

Waed stated that the most affected prisoners by this ban are the Gazan prisoners due to the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, in addition to confiscating their money by the occupation forces.

The Israeli ban on the prisoners’ winter clothing came despite the cold weather and the significant fall in temperatures witnessed in the Palestinian occupied territories.

“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.
