*Qaadan, Azzidine suspend hunger strike*

Published today (updated) 27/02/2013 22:43

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Tareq Qaadan and Jafar Azzidine on Wednesday 
suspended their 93-day hunger strike after a hearing held at a hospital 
near Tel Aviv, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.

Qaadan and Azzidine suspended their strike after an Israeli military 
prosecutor said their administrative detention order would not be 
renewed, the PPS said in a statement. Their current detention order 
expires on May 21.

They will consider renewing the strike depending on the outcome of the 
next hearing on March 6.

In Assaf Harofeh Hospital, where the prisoners are being treated, a 
military judge said she would reveal the secret charges and evidence 
against the men and issue a final decision at their next hearing, said 
lawyer Jawad Bulous.

Qaadan and Azzidine have been held in administrative detention on secret 
charges and evidence that even their lawyers have not been allowed to 

Both men attended Wednesday's hearing in wheelchairs. They were due to 
appear at Ofer military court near Ramallah on Tuesday but the hearing 
was postponed as the detainees were too sick to attend.
