images_News_2013_03_15_isawi01_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli prison authorities have removed the shackles from the feet of the Jerusalemite hunger striking prisoner Samer al-Issawi, who has entered a stage of extreme danger after he stopped drinking water and liquids.

Lawyer Jawad Boulos, who visited the hunger striker Issawi, said that the authorities have removed the shackles and that the jailers have stopped other forms of torture.

He added in a press statement that the occupation authorities have taken this position after the doctors at the hospital explained that Samer is in extreme danger, especially after showing signs of heart failure.

The doctors stated that at this stage Samer is facing death or entering into a coma.

Meanwhile, the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton said that the EU is following with “great concern” the situation of prisoners on hunger strike.

She added in a letter sent to Saeb Erekat, in reply to his letter of 18 February on the conditions of the prisoners on hunger strike: “We are following up their deteriorating health conditions, and are deeply concerned for the absence of a comprehensive solution to their situation.”

She explained that she has contacted the Israeli officials, in this regard, and that the EU adheres to the international law, and refuses administrative detentions and any arrest based on secret files or without charges and trials.

Ashton confirmed that the EU, all its institutions; including the European Council and the European Parliament, and its Member States will follow up the issues of Palestinian prisoners with the “Israeli” concerned bodies.

Meanwhile, captive Samer Braq, who halted his hunger strike following an agreement to release him and deport him to Egypt, threatened to resume his strike if the occupation authorities will not release him and allow him return to the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank.
