Hassan Safadi scheduled for Monday release

The Palestinian Prisoners Society announced that Monday, October 29 is the scheduled release date for long term hunger striker and Palestinian political prisoner Hassan Safadi of Nablus. Safadi launched a 73-day hunger strike to demand his freedom from administrative detention. Despite the agreement in the May 15, 2012 prisoners’ agreement with the Israeli prison services that the long term hunger strikers on administrative detention would not have their sentences renewed, Safadi’s sentence was renewed – and he resumed his strike for an additional 95 days. His strike ended after an Israeli concession to release him on October 29 and not renew his administrative detention or place him under administrative detention again through re-arrest. The Prisoners’ Society invited all to welcome Hassan Safadi back to his home.
