#FreeSamer | Global action to save the life of Hunger striker Samer Issawi

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli Magistrate Court in occupied Jerusalem has refused to release detained hunger striker Samer Al-Issawi on bail and decided to keep him incarcerated.

Lawyer Jawad Bulous, the head of the legal section in the Palestinian prisoner’s society, said that Issawi was brought to court on Tuesday in a wheelchair under tight security with both his feet and hands shackled despite his bad health condition.

Bulous quoted Issawi as telling the judge, when asked about his health condition, that he sometimes go unconscious due to low sugar levels. He added that doctors told him that his health condition remains critical but stable.

The lawyer said that despite the clearly serious condition of Issawi, yet the court accepted the prosecution’s demand and kept him in custody, adding that Issawi’s mother fainted after hearing the decision.
