VIDEO | #PalHunger | Palestinian prisoners released after 9 years

Published on Feb 11, 2013

In June 7th, 2004, Akram al-Rekhawy, 40 year old, was going home from Gaza to Rafah to support his daughter after her school exams, but Akram never made it home until Feb 7th, 2013. The Israeli forces imprisoned him under administrative detention. In response to the administrative detention, he went on a hunger strike that lasted for 112 days, which led to his release. Akram has been held in Ramleh prison medical center since his arrest, as he suffers from many chronic conditions, including asthma. He suffered from severe complications due to medical carelessness, resulting in additional chronic illnesses such as diabetes, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, kidney problems, and immune deficiency from which Akram now suffers. Akram is married and has eight children.

A journal published by Adalah, Physicians for Human Rights-Israel and Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights | June 26, 2012

“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.
