  Adnan Forcibly Hospitalized and Restrained

Report post 

    Israeli media reported, Tuesday, that Khader Adnan, the Palestinian
    administrative detainee who has been on hunger strike for over a
    month has been forcibly hospitalized and chained to his bed.

Al Ray reports that Khader Adnan is hospitalized in Assaf Haroteh, with 
one hand and one leg cuffed to the bed 24-hours a day and three 
policemen in his room around the clock, said two Israeli anti-occupation 
activists who visited him last Friday.

Adnan, who was placed under administrative detention for the ninth time 
11 months ago, went on hunger strike to protest his prolonged detention 
without trial. Three years ago, during another period of administrative 
detention, he won his release after hunger-striking for 66 days. 
Altogether he has spent more than six years in Israeli detention.

Adnan , who is refusing to undergo medical tests, objected to his 
hospitalization because he knew he would be chained to the bed, attorney 
Jawad Boulus said.

According to Israeli sources, Israeli Prison Service (IPS) regulations 
forbid cuffing a prisoner unless the warden fears "he is liable to 
escape or help others to escape, cause damage to people or property, 
damage or destroy evidence, or receive or deliver an object liable to be 
used to commit a crime or undermine discipline in his place of custody." 
IPS spokeswoman Siva Weizman declined to specify which of these 
offensives the service feared Adnan would commit.

Ahmed Sa'adat, secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation 
of Palestine said that the 2012 hunger strike was called to protest the 
prevention of family visits, prolonged periods of isolation and the 
widespread use of administrative detention. But, neither written nor 
oral agreements reached at the time are being kept, according to Sa'adat.
