Thaer Halahleh’s administrative detention renewed again

Report from the Palestine Information Center: (PIC)– The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) renewed the administrative detention of the patient prisoner Thaer Halahleh, 36, for six months for the third time in a row.

Halahleh was re-arrested on August 2014. Since then, he was held in administrative detention without charge or trial.
IOA have earlier refused several appeals submitted by Halahleh’s lawyer for his release.

During his detention, Halahleh suffered a liver infection as he catches Hepatitis C virus during a medical test in Ashkelon prison.

Despite being held for a whole year, Halahleh did not receive any medical care. He was instead subjected to deliberate medical negligence.

Prisoners Information Center warned of the serious health condition of Thaer Halahleh who had earlier declared a hunger strike for 78 days running protesting his repeated detention without trial or charge.

Halahleh has served more than nine years in Israeli jails during separate arrests.
