  Detainee Adnan Is Only Consuming Water And Salt

author Thursday May 21, 2015 13:24author by IMEMC & Agencies

    Hunger-striking detainee Khader Adnan, who started his strike nearly
    three weeks ago, is currently only consuming salt and water,
    rejecting medical checkups and any sort of supplements. 

Lawyer Ashraf al-Khatib of the Palestinian Detainees Committee said 
Adnan is determined to continue his strike until the Israeli authorities 
end his arbitrary Administrative Detention, without charges or trial.

Al-Khatib managed to visit Khader in the solitary confinement section of 
the Hadarim Israeli prison, and that the detainee informed him he is not 
accepting medical checkups, medications or ant sort of supplements.

He added that Khader in determined to continue his legal battle against 
his illegal imprisonment, especially since Israeli uses Administrative 
Detention policies to keep hundreds of detainees imprisoned without 
charges for extended and repeatedly renewed periods of time.

Khader also informed the Prison Authority that he would not attend any 
session of Administrative Detention courts, as they have no legitimacy 
and are only setup for show.

The Prison Administration threatened to take him to court by force, 
while the detainee is also rejecting to be represented by any lawyer in 
absentia, adding that the Red Cross visited him twice since he started 
his hunger strike.

He was re-arrested by the Israeli authorities on July 8, 2014, two years 
after he was released from following a 66-day hunger strike against 
administrative detention, where no formal charges were laid against him.
