Attorney Says Health of Striking Prisoner Deteriorated

RAMALLAH, March 27, 2012 (WAFA) – Attorney Jawad Boulus, who represents striking prisoner in Israeli jails, Hana Shalabi, said Tuesday that Shalabi’s health has deteriorated and that she was bleeding from the nose and mouth.
Boulus visited Shalabi at Meir Hospital in northern Israel, where she is getting treatment following 41 continuous days of hunger strike to protest her administrative detention.
He said Shalabi was disappointed and angry when she was informed that an Israeli court had rejected her appeal for early release.
Shalabi, 30, from the Jenin area in the northern West Bank, was arrested on February 16 and placed in administrative detention for six months. Her sentence was later reduced to four months.
Boulus said Shalabi will be kept in hospital to remain under observation as she continues to refuse to eat.Attorney Says Health of Striking Prisoner Deteriorated
