[ PIC 01/07/2013 – 10:12 AM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Families of the Jordanian hunger strikers held in Israeli occupation jails have appealed for saving the lives of the captives who have been on hunger strike for two months.

The appeal was made following news of serious deterioration in the health condition of Abdullah Al-Barghouthi and his possible sudden death at any time.

The Jordanian prisoners are protesting their maltreatment and demanding serving the rest of their sentences in Jordanian prisons.

The five Jordanian prisoners on hunger strike are serving sentences ranging from ten years to life imprisonment and most of them are Palestinians carrying Jordanian passports.

“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.
