Israel frees sick prisoner Muhammed Al-Taj

Maan News Agency | April 18, 2013

212533_345x230[1]RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Israel released sick Palestinian prisoner Muhammad al-Taj Thursday after a serious deterioration in his health, the Palestinian ministry of prisoners affairs announced.

Al-Taj had been serving a 15-year sentence since 2003. He recently began suffering from pulmonary failure. He was immediately transferred to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah to start treatment.

Ziad Abu Ein, undersecretary of the prisoners ministry, said Palestinian officials were still holding talks with the Israeli side about the fate of hunger-striker Samer Issawi.

Lawyers say Issawi has refused offers from Israel for a temporary deportation to Gaza for two years. He insists instead on returning to Jerusalem.

“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.
