  • On day 89 of hunger strike Israeli occupation transfers Palestinian out of hospital back to prison

Sinn Fein Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA), Pat Sheehan, today called for the immediate release of Palestinian hunger striker Maher al-Akhras who has now reached a critical stage, according to a press statement.

Link said, "Mr. Akhras is now in a state of great weakness after he has been without food for 89 days".

'Recent visits by doctors to his hospital bed in Israel indicate that he is on the verge of suffering major organ failure, and some damage might be permanent, ' Lynk added.

The Israeli authorities suspect that Al-Akhras, 49, from the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank, was associated with the Islamic Jihad movement. An administrative detention order was issued against him on 7 August to run until 26 November 2020.

Al-Akhras was subjected to administrative detention in Israeli prisons in 2009 for a period of 16 months, as well as administrative detention in 2018.

"Administrative detention is an anathema in any democratic society that follows the rule of law", Lynk said.

'When the democratic state arrests and detains someone, it is required to charge the person, present its evidence in an open trial, allow for a full defense and try to persuade an impartial judiciary of its allegations beyond a reasonable doubt, ' he added.

Israel has been regularly criticized by global human rights organizations for its promiscuous use of administrative detention.

Al-Akhras, who has been on a hunger strike for 91 days, was detained July 27 and held under Israel's administrative detention policy which allows it to hold Palestinians without charge.

The Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation said on Friday evening that the Israeli Supreme Court had canceled the decision of the Shin Bet and the Israeli Military Prosecutor's Office to transfer Akhras from Kaplan Hospital after an urgent application filed by his lawyer.

The Israeli occupation authorities chose to transfer a Palestinian detainee who has been on hunger strike for almost 90 days from a civilian hospital inside Israeli occupied territory back to prison, despite his critical condition.

On Saturday night United Nations high commissioner for human rights in the occupied territories Michael Links called on Israel to release Mr Akhras.

Lynk called on Tel Aviv "to abolish" the practice of administrative detention and free those detainees it has placed behind bars in its prisons.
