OC4P – Oban Concern for Palestine – take absolutely no pleasure in sharing the information that
The Annual Report on Violations of Palestinian Prisoners’ Rights in Israeli Prisons for 2015
is now available online.
‘examines the violations committed by the Israeli occupation forces and the Israeli Prison Services (IPS) against Palestinians prisoners and detainees throughout the different stages of their arrest and detention in 2015, including the violations following the October popular uprising.’
Published on 1 December 2016 by the Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, the report
‘is the result of the collective efforts of a well-rounded team of lawyers, as well legal and field researchers. Addameer holds in high regard the legal aspects of such reports with the work of a fully fledged team of lawyers that regularly visit prisons.
‘In 2015, the Documentation and Research Unit visited 350 prisoners in 142 visits to Israeli interrogation centers, detention centers and central prisons. The unit filed numerous complaints referencing the majority of the violations cited in this report, and offered legal representation in many cases.’
