#PalHunger | Prisoner Tha’er Halahila suffers from serious health problem and medical neglect

[ PIC 19/08/2013 – 09:25 AM ]


AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Palestinian prisoners center for studies said that prisoner Tha’er Halahila, 35, is in difficult health situation and exposed to deliberate medical neglect by his jailers in Ofer prison.

The center stated on Sunday that Halahila has been afflicted with a type of hepatitis and his condition gets worse every day as the Ofer prison administration deliberately ignores his urgent need for medical treatment.

The center affirmed that the Ofer jailers flouted five court orders demanding them to provide the prisoner with immediate medical treatment.

Prisoner Halahila, from Al-Khalil city, had gone on hunger strike for 67 days to protest his administrative detention before he accepted a deal ending his hunger strike in exchange for his freedom, but last April he was taken prisoner once again.

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.
