#ReleaseIssawi | Gov’t: Re-arresting freed captives blatant violation of the agreement (AND LAW)

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.

images_News_2013_02_18_arrests_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian government in Gaza lashed out at the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) for re-arresting Palestinian ex-prisoners who were freed in the prisoners’ exchange deal.

Dr. Attala Abul Sabh charged in a statement on Monday that the IOA act was an atrocious violation of the exchange agreement and an additional proof of its constant breaches of international doctrines and agreements.

He said that the IOA decision that allows the re-arrest of those captives at the pretext of secret files against them, then forcing them to complete their former sentences constituted a grave atrocity.

Abul Sabh noted that the IOA had re-arrested 14 prisoners who were freed in the Wafa Al-Ahrar deal and is still holding 8 of them behind bars including Samer Al-Issawi who has been on hunger strike for 210 days and Ayman Sharawne who has been on hunger strike for 220 days protesting their detention.

The minister urged the world community to pressure Israel into ending its repeated violations against Palestinian captives.

“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.
