Administrative Detention of Striking Prisoner Renewed

RAMALLAH, August 14, 2013 (WAFA) – The Israeli military prosecutor extended by six months the administrative detention of Ayman Hamdan, who has been on hunger strike for 108 days, the Prisoner Club said Wednesday.

It quoted attorney Jawad Boulus saying that a military court is going to convene on August 27 to uphold the prosecutor’s decision.

The Prisoner Club said Hamdan, from Bethlehem, has been on hunger strike demanding his release from administrative detention since his arrest on August 22 of last year.

Hamdan’s current administrative detention was supposed to end on August 22. He was previously held in administrative detention in 2002, then arrested again in 2004 and imprisoned for two-and-a-half years and arrested a third time in 2008 for three years.
