RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The mother of hunger striker Samer al-Issawi condemned preventing her from meeting PA President Mahmoud Abbas, and holding her in al-Muqataa in Ramallah.

Issawi’s mother told Filastin TV channel yesterday evening, that she went to the Muqataa headquarters to meet President Abbas and tell him about the suffering of her son who has been on hunger strike for nearly six months, but the guards prevented her from entering.

She added that the guards started making fun of her son’s strike, then forced her to leave the headquarters without meeting Abbas.

Lawyer Shirin Issawi, Samer’s sister, has criticized a month ago Palestinian Authority Chairman’s attitude of ignoring her brother’s strike.

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.
