[ PIC 14/02/2013 – 11:32 AM ]


CAIRO, (PIC)– Dr. Salah Sultan, the secretary general of the higher council for Islamic affairs affiliated with the Egyptian ministry of Awkaf, has asked president Mohammed Morsi to intervene and save the life of Palestinian hunger striker Samer Al-Issawi.

Sultan said in a statement on Wednesday that Morsi in his capacity as current chairman of the Organization of Islamic Conference should have a stand regarding the issue of the Palestinian administrative detainee.

He added that the Arab League, the UN, civil organizations, and human rights groups should pressure Israel into halting its violations against the Palestinian people in general and prisoners in particular.

He said that all those organizations should also be concerned with the issue of Issawi who has been on hunger strike for 200 days and faces the possibility of dying in captivity.

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.
