/Ramallah, 23 July 2012 --/ Following a visit today by Addameer lawyer 
Mona Nadaf, Addameer can confirm that Palestinian hunger striker Akram 
Rikhawi has ended his hunger strike after reaching an agreement with the 
Israeli Prison Service. Akram ended his hunger strike yesterday evening 
after 102 days.

As part of the agreement Akram will be released on 25^th  January 2013, 
which is six months prior to his original release date. Addameer's 
lawyer visited Akram in Ramleh prison, where he remains in critical 
condition. It was agreed that upon his release he will return to his 
home in the Gaza Strip.

Addameer's lawyer also visited Hassan Safadi, who is on his 33^rd  day 
of hunger strike. Hassan's health continues to deteriorate with recent 
tests indicating that he has developed kidney stones as a result of his 
hunger strike. He remains extremely weak and is currently taking only 
water and vitamins.
