Occupation isolates Palestinian captive Ammar Abu Ghalion for the 66th day

Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a press statement on Sunday that “the Israeli Raymond prison administration has continued, for the 66th day, to isolate captive Ammar Abu Galion, aged 34 from the city of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank, because he has been demanding to be transferred to the northern prisons, near the place of his residence, so that his mother (aged 78) will be able to visit him.”

Captive Abu Galion told PPS’s lawyer who visited him that the prison administration has been deliberately transferring him from one prison to another in the south, and that it has also imposed on him fines of 800 shekels (equivalent to U.S. $ 220) without any justification.

He pointed out that he went on hunger strikes three consecutive times, but the prison administration paid no heed, and escalated its repressive measures against him.

Ammar Abu Ghalion is a liberated prisoner. He has been re-arrested by the occupation authorities in 2008 and was sentenced to 14 and a half years imprisonment.
