More Palestinian prisoners might die behind bars
Palestine-Israel, Politics, 7/15/1998
The condition of Palestinian prisoners held in Ramleh prison in Israel is deteriorating, and more prisoners might lose their lives if nothing is immediately done to save them, an Arab member of the Israeli Knesset warned.
Abdul Malek Dahamshe of the Arab Democratic Party visited a number of Palestinian prisoners in Ramleh and said that Mohammed Hassan Abu Hadwan, who was been in prison for the last 13 years, is facing a serious heart disease that he might fail to survive. Dahamshe said that he met with Ali Shalaldeh, Abdullah Qadura, Sultan Ajlouni, Ismail Juma' and Fat'hi Zaqout, and that all are suffering of serious diseases.
Dahamshe called on the Israeli police minister to extend medical checkups to the prisoners immediately, "before it is too late." He noted that the latest fatality in prison of Yousef Ar'ir, who died a few months ago at age 68, was caused by a failed open-heart surgery.
