Lawyer says banned from seeing detainees

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Lawyer Jamal Abdo said Israeli prison authorities prevented him from visiting female detainees on Thursday.

Abdo, affiliated with the Hurrayyet human rights center, said he had coordinated with prison authorities to visit Ibtisam Isawi, Wourud Qasem, Du’a Jayousi and Sumoud Karajah at the Al-Damon prison.

Despite previous coordination, Abdo said that after waiting for 90 minutes the prison administration informed him that he could not see the women.

In a statement, Hurreyyet condemned the incident as further pressure imposed on female Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons.
