#PalHunger | Resheq slams Israel’s manipulation of prisoner swap deal with resistence

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.

DataFiles_Cache_TempImgs_2013_1_images_News_2013_02_18_Resheq-0_300_0BEIRUT, (PIC)– Member of Hamas’s political bureau Ezzat Al-Resheq strongly denounced the Israeli regime for legalizing its recapture of the Palestinian ex-detainees who were freed as part of the Egyptian-brokered swap deal and inventing a law to justify its action.

According to a new Israeli military law, the Israeli army and the security apparatuses like the Shin Bet allowed themselves to redetain 14 Palestinians released as part of the prisoner swap deal that was mediated by Egypt and Germany in October 2011. Resheq stated on Sunday

“This is a flagrant violation of the prisoner swap deal, which is considered an international agreement sponsored by Egypt, the Hamas official emphasized.

He called on Egypt to assume its responsibility in this regard and prevent Israel from manipulating its swap deal with the Palestinians in Gaza.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz had revealed on Sunday that the Israeli government had made a slight change to a military law during its prisoner swap talks in 2011 in order to enable it to redetain the Palestinians to be released in exchange for the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

For his part, spokesman for Hamas Sami Abu Zuhri condemned Israel for manipulating its swap deal with his Movement.

The spokesman warned that Israel would regret its persistence in violating the swap deal and demanded it to backtrack on its decision in this regard.

Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights also expressed its rejection of any Israeli law intended to circumvent its commitments under the prisoner swap agreement between it and the Palestinians.

Director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh stated that Israel wanted, through fabricating such law, to make the swap deal useless to the Palestinians and avenge the resistance for its success in extracting the freedom of many long-time prisoners from its jail.

Khafsh appealed to human rights group to necessarily stand against this new Israeli military law.

“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.
