The Palestinian Information Centre reported that the Ofer prison administration deprived detained MP Mohammed Al-Tal of his medicine as punishment for refusing to go to the prison clinic.
The detainee’s wife said that her husband refused to go to the clinic for medical tests to protest the renewal of his administrative detention for the second time.
She said that Mohammed suffers from diabetes and hypertension and should take medication for both diseases on daily basis.
The wife said that Mohammed was deprived of his medication for eight days which puts his life at great risk.
The Israeli occupation authorities arrested the MP, from Al-Khalil, on 4/2/2013 and held him in administrative detention for four months then renewed his custody recently for the second time.
