Military Court Rejects Striking Prisoner’s Appeal

RAMALLAH, February 13, 2012 (WAFA) – The Israeli military court Monday upheld the four-month administrative detention order against Khader Adnan, the Palestinian prisoner who has been on hunger strike for 58 days protesting his arrest without charge or trial, according to the Prisoners Club.

The court rejected an appeal by Adnan’s lawyers against his detention, which means Adnan will continue on hunger strike, which may threaten his life, said the Club.

Prisoners Club lawyer Jawad Boulus said the decision was expected since “we never expect justice from the military courts.”

Meanwhile, the Prisoners Club and the Ministry of Prisoners have called for a general hunger strike on Wednesday outside Red Cross offices throughout the Palestinian Territory from 9:00 in the morning until sunset in support of Adnan.
