  Detainee ‘Adnan On Hunger Strike Since January 6

author Friday January 09, 2015 06:40author by IMEMC

    The family of Palestinian political prisoner Khader ‘Adnan, 37 years
    of age, said their son started his most recent hunger strike on
    January 6, protesting the renewal of his arbitrary Administrative
    Detention policy, without charges or trial.

The family said it received a letter, smuggled by the detainees from the 
Hadarim Israeli Prison, informing them their son started a week-long 
hunger strike, as an initial step towards protesting his continued 

‘Adnan was informed that, for the second consecutive time, the Israeli 
Prison Authority has decided to renew his arbitrary detention for an 
additional six months.

He was also moved into solitary confinement, and was denied the right to 
any visits, including the right to meet his defense attorney.

The detainee held his first hunger strike when he was imprisoned under 
Administrative Detention in 2012, and was released in April the same 
year. He agreed to end his 62-day hunger strike when the Israeli 
Authorities promised his release.

On July 8 2014, the army kidnapped ‘Adnan and slapped a six-month 
Administrative Detention on him, and on December 11 2014, the Salem 
Israeli Military Court ordered his immediate release, but the Israeli 
prosecution appealed the decision.

Adnan is from the town of ‘Arraba, near the northern West Bank city of 
Jenin; he was born on March 24 1978 and was imprisoned by Israel ten 
times. He is a married father of five children.
