Female detainees at Hasharon prison 'punished'

April 21, 2011 1:59 A.M. (Updated: April 21, 2011 1:59 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Lawyer Fawzi Shludi reported Tuesday that the administration at Hasharon prison imposed punishments on female detainees after they refused to eat.

Prison staff restricted access to recreation time due to the hunger strike, the attorney said, which is protesting Israeli authorities refusal to allow the women to wear traditional garments in court.

The women have been forced to wear orange jumpsuits while in court and are prohibited from holding paper or pens when they meet with their lawyer, according to Shludi.
