#PalHunger | Israel renews administrative detention of Barq for three months

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

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) renewed on Sunday the administrative detention of Samer Al-Barq for three more months despite earlier promises of releasing him.

Barq’s family said in a press release that the Israeli prosecution backtracked on earlier promises to release Barq, 39, on condition that a country was ready to receive him.

The family said that Egypt had declared readiness to receive him but the Israeli war on Gaza postponed the issue, adding that Barq’s passport and other necessary papers are with the Egyptians but the Israelis are still procrastinating on the issue.

Barq, from Jayus town to the east of Qalqilia, was arrested on 11/7/2010 at the Karame bridge. He went on hunger strike on 24/5/2012 for 125 days demanding an end to his administrative custody. He broke his hunger strike after a deal was brokered to release and to deport him to Egypt.

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.
