This prisoner has been
violated sexually by one of the prison guards at Hasharon Prison where she was
held. Her headscarf was taken from her and she was placed in
isolation/separation in a section for criminal prisoners, in a filthy and wet
cell without daylight and ventilation and with the air full of insecticide. She
has no access to any form of activity: books, TV or handicraft.
We appeal to you to immediately:
an investigation of the guard who violated the minor prisoner; we expect that
the prison authorities will take the necessary action against the guard.
the minor prisoner from isolation/separation in a section for criminals to a
section for Palestinian women political prisoners.
the minor political prisoner – if she is not released immediately – in a
cell that is suitable for human accommodation.
With this letter we wish to
express our indignation with regard to the treatment this political prisoner is
being subjected to, and we expect that you – if she is not released
immediately - will take the necessary steps to ensure that she is treated
according to ordinary human rights and international humanitarian conventions.
We look forward to receiving
your answer to this letter.
