Hamdouna warns against ignoring the spread of coronavirus among prisoners

The Director of the Prisoners Center for Studies, Dr. Raafat Hamdouna, called on international institutions, led by the International Red Cross, to put pressure on the occupation to resume and regular the program of visits for all prisoners and detainees, considering that the visit to the prisoner is a right guaranteed by international conventions, especially the Third and Fourth Geneva Convention, and that the prisoners are in need now. For visits and the introduction of the needs of clothes, shoes and covers due to the entry of the winter season and atmospheric depressions.

Dr. said. Hamduna said in a statement to Ma’an that the occupation authorities obstruct the visits of the families of the prisoners and detainees, and practice a policy of humiliation and humiliation against families at the crossings, checkpoints and prison gates during their children’s visit, and prevent the granting of permits to some of them to the prisoners of the Gaza Strip.
He explained that the return of dozens of families of prisoners in the West Bank yesterday, Monday, who were heading to visit for the third time, claiming that they had not received the third dose of the anti-Coronavirus vaccine is a flimsy pretext, since many of them have already received the vaccine, and that the occupation prisons administration did not announce a change in its procedures regarding the visit.
