Health condition of detainee Thaer Halahle worsening

[ PIC 11/06/2013 – 10:44 AM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– A Palestinian human rights group has warned of the rapid deterioration of the health condition of detainee Thaer Halahle who suffered from a liver infection few weeks after his detention.

The Palestinian prisoner’s society said in a statement on Tuesday that Halahle was not treated for his disease, which worsened his condition.

It charged the Israeli prison authorities with deliberately ignoring Halahle’s disease despite the fact that judges in five hearings asked those authorities to grant him necessary medical treatment.

The society said that its lawyer in a visit to Halahle in Ofer jail realized the impact of his disease on his physical condition.

Halahle charged the Israeli prison administration with attempting to kill him, explaining that he underwent dental treatment during his interrogation in Askalan jail during which “contaminated” tools were used.

He said that his health condition was worsening and his abdomen was swelling because of the infection.

Halahle had gone on hunger strike for 67 days before the Israeli occupation authority decided to release him, but he was detained anew in April and was subjected to cruel interrogation rounds for 24 successive days.
