#PalHunger | Al-Rikhawi is free after 104 days on hunger strike

[ PIC 08/02/2013 – 05:59 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli occupation authorities released on Thursday evening, prisoner Akram al-Rikhawi from Rafah town in the southern Gaza Strip, after 104 days on hunger strike.

The released prisoner said, during a press conference upon his arrival from Beit Hanoun checkpoint in the northern Gaza Strip, that his release is considered a victory over the Israeli jailer.

Al-Rikhawi greeted the prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisons, asserting that they live in difficult conditions in the light of the continued health deterioration due to their hunger strike since several months.

Al-Rikhawi was transfered to al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City for medical tests especially after his health deterioration as a result of his hunger strike.

Al-Rikhawi was arrested in June 2004, where he served 9 years before being released today.

“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.
