#PalHunger | Prisoner society: The Jordanian hunger strikers are held with mental patients

[ PIC 16/07/2013 – 12:57 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoner society said that the Jordanian hunger strikers are being held with mental patients in the Ramla jail infirmary in order to pressure them into breaking their hunger strike.

The lawyer of the prisoner society stated that the hunger strikers were brought handcuffed and shackled during his visit to the jail on Monday without any consideration to their poor health conditions.

He said that the jail administration told him that no lawyer can visit the hunger strikers as of Monday without a permission form the district officer, noting that this punitive step is aimed at isolating them from the outside world.

The lawyer added that hunger strikers Mohamed Rimawi, Alaa Hammad, Munir Marei and Hamza Addabas are locked up inside an unhealthy cell lacking the minimum basic needs.
