Israeli occupation bars MK from visiting a Palestinian captive Abu Sisi for the third time

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– MK Ibrahim Abu Sarsour, head of the United Arab List, condemned the Israeli occupation authority’s decision to bar him from visiting Palestinian captive, Dirar Abu Sisi for the third time. He said that such behaviour on the part of the occupation authorities is an attempt to hide the condition of captive Abu Sisi who has been in solitary confinement since his kidnapping from the Ukraine in February 2011.

In a statement on Friday, MK Sarsour said: “In the framework of following up the captive’s files, I visited Abu Sisi more than once. During those visits I saw the deterioration in his health due medical neglect and isolation in bad conditions. I was surprised lately that I was barred from visiting him.”

“When I asked the minister of Internal Security about this, he replied that a high level decision was taken to bar me from visiting the captive for reasons relating to the national security of Israel.

“ I believe that the reason for barring is more to do with hiding physical condition of the captive which has deteriorated according to his family and lawyer.

“Captive Abu Sisi suffers from a stomach ulcer, asthma, kidney problems, hypertension, spine problems and migraine.”

Abu Sisi has just ended a hunger strike after he was promised to be moved out of isolation in Eishel to high security Balshmore section, where he will be able to meet other captives.
