Human Rights organization: Conditions in Ofer prison deteriorate

[ PIC 07/01/2013 – 08:35 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian Human Rights organization warned of the deterioration of the situations in the Ofer military prison as a result of the “squalid conditions” experienced by the Palestinian prisoners in the jail.

The Ahrar Center for the Studies of Prisoners and Human Rights noted in a press statement on Sunday that the situation has recently worsened in the Ofer prison after the appointment of a new Israeli officer, who has issued a new set of resolutions putting further restrictions on the Palestinian prisoners, according to the statement.

The Center quoted the Palestinian liberated Prisoner Aziz Harun Kayed, 46 from the city of Ramallah, as saying that a state of anger and tension has prevailed in the prison due to the decision of the new officer in charge to reduce the number of times in which the prisoners leave their rooms to the prison yard to two times a day.

The Israeli officer has also issued a decision to transfer a large number of prisoners from other detention centers to Ofer prison, which led to an overcrowding in the prison rooms and sections.

Kayed, who had been released from the prisons of the Israeli occupation less than a month ago, added that the Ofer prison administration has started applying these two new resolutions at the beginning of last December.

“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.
