Wa’ed society appeals to human rights groups to save life of Abu Sisi

[ PIC 18/02/2013 – 01:26 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)– Wa’ed society for detainees and ex-detainees called on international human rights groups to necessarily intervene to save the life of prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi, who has been in Israeli solitary confinement for two years.

According to Wa’ed, the health condition of Abu Sisi has deteriorated, especially since he suffers from several chronic diseases.

It said that Abu Sisi is isolated in a solitary cell for 23 hours and only allowed for one hour to stay in a bigger room, affirming that he is being locked up in a very tight cell.

His lawyer told Wa’ed society that the solitary confinement seriously affected his psychological health and called for immediate action to save him.

He added that the prisoner is also deprived of seeing his wife and children.

About two years ago, Israeli Mossad agents collaborating with the Ukrainian authorities kidnapped Gaza civil engineer Dirar Abusisi on a Ukrainian train before he was drugged and shipped in a coffin to the Israeli occupied lands.

There he was imprisoned under sham charges that he was Hamas’s chief rocket engineer. He has languished in solitary confinement without trial since then.

In February 2011, Abu Sisi traveled to Ukraine, his wife Veronika’s native country, to seek citizenship after Israel’s winter 2008-09 attack on the Gaza Strip. The ferocity of the war made him fear for the safety of their six children and thus he decided to leave the besieged Gaza Strip.

“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.
