PA: Female prisoner of Israel beaten in custody

Nov. 27, 2010 1:36 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 27, 2010 10:05 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The PA Ministry of Prisoners Affairs released a report Saturday alleging that a Palestinian woman in Israeli custody was brutally beaten in the Ramle prison after she refused to submit to a strip search.

Twenty-two-year-old Sumoud Hasan Karaja, from the central West Bank village of Saffa, was transferred from Israel's Damon prison to the Ramle facility on 8 November, lawyers for the ministry reported after visiting the woman.

At Ramle prison, the report said, a group of male and female wardens wanted to strip-search her but she refused.

When she struggled, a male warden grabbed her head covering and her neck, pushing her into the ground. She said one warden spat in her face, then the male pulled her up forcibly by the handcuffs on her wrists behind her back.

When lawyers visited her, in preparation to file a suit against the prison, severe bruising was documented on her wrists, and she still complained of pain in her shoulders.
