#PalHunger | International campaign for the release of striking prisoners

[ PIC 04/02/2013 – 05:42 PM ]

OSLO, (PIC)– The European network for the defense of Palestinian prisoners (UFree), based in Oslo, declared an international campaign for the support of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

The campaign came in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli jails, UFree said in its statement on Sunday.

The campaign, titled “Freedom and Justice for Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails”, called for the release of Palestinian prisoners who are on a hunger strike as their arrest is illegal as it’s the case with thousands of Palestinian prisoners.

UFree called on Egyptian President, Mohammad Morsi, to personally interfere to release those prisoners as they were released within the Shalit swap deal which was reached through Egyptian mediation on October 2011.

The human right network also called on Doctors Without Borders and the International Red Cross to promptly and immediately interfere to save the lives of Ayman and Samir and to expose Israeli flagrant violations, torture and inhumane treatment against Palestinian prisoners.

It urged the United Nations Human Rights Council to put pressure on the Israeli authorities to release striking prisoners in addition to sending an International commission to investigate torture practiced against Palestinian prisoners.

“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.
