#PalHunger | Barhoum lashes out at Israel’s continued detention of liberated prisoners

[ PIC 21/01/2013 – 09:35 PM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas movement held the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for the lives of the Palestinian prisoners especially those on hunger strike.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, said in a press release on Monday that the continued detention of those prisoners and deriving intense pleasure from torturing them is a crime against humanity and blatant violation of human and prisoners’ rights.

He regretted that such violations had fallen on deaf international ears.

Israel’s disregard of prisoners’ rights and the international silence toward their suffering would only boost Hamas’s insistence on supporting and defending the issue of those prisoners until their final liberation from captivity, Barhoum said.

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.

“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.
