Families of detainees urge UN to intervene and end their suffering

[ PIC 16/03/2013 – 05:51 PM ]

images_News_2013_03_16_relatives_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Families of two Palestinian detainees delivered on Saturday a message to the UN Secretary General’s envoy for human rights in Palestine on the prisoners’ plight.

The family of hunger striker Ayman Al-Sharawne and family of Jerusalemite detainee Hussam Shahin appealed in the message addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for immediate intervention to end the suffering of those prisoners, some of whom had been behind bars for decades.

The message focused on the difficult health condition of hunger strikers who have been on strike for more than 250 days, charging the Israeli authorities with delaying a solution to their condition without any justification.

Hundreds of Palestinian families coming from various provinces accompanied the families of Sharawne and Shahin and raised slogans asking about the role of the Palestinian Authority and the Arab League in supporting the cause of those prisoners.

A big number of liberated prisoners and members of the higher authority to follow up prisoners’ affairs and private and popular institutions attended the sit-in.
