images_News_2013_04_06_german_300_0[1]BERLIN, (PIC)– The Palestinian assembly in Germany organized a protest in the city of Dortmund in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to denounce the Israeli persistent repressive policy against the Palestinian prisoners.

Scores of Palestinians and peace activists raised photos of Palestinian prisoners and the martyr Maysara Abu Hamdiya, during the sit-in staged in the commercial center in the city of Dortmund on Friday.

They chanted slogans in solidarity with the prisoners, and called for putting an end to the Israeli occupation’s abuses against them.

Dr. Rami Qarchali, in a statement on behalf of the assembly, appealed to the world community to immediately intervene and oblige Israel “to treat the Palestinian prisoners according to international standards and laws.”

He stressed the prisoners’ right to receive necessary medical treatment, as stipulated by international law, and demanded the release of sick prisoners.

Qarchali also denounced “the German official silence at the Israeli occupation authorities’ flagrant violation of international treaties”, and appealed to the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, to pressure the Israeli government to end the suffering of the Palestinian prisoners.

The protestors asserted that the events in support of prisoners will continue, as the Palestinian assembly in Germany is expected to commemorate the “Palestinian Prisoners’ Day” on the 27th of this April in the city of Dortmund.

“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.
