Prisoners representative: Halahla moved to investigations unit

May 20, 2012 11:39 P.M. (Updated: May 21, 2012 5:39 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society said a former hunger-striker has been transferred to an investigations unit, in breach of a deal struck to end prisoners' hunger-strikes.

Thaer Halahla, 33, held a 77-day strike to protest his detention without charge by Israel.

He agreed to the deal signed last Monday in exchange for release at the end of his current administrative detention term on June 5.

Society chief Qaddura Fares said Halahla was moved to the Nitsan investigation, part of Ramla jail, and he considers this a breach of the terms of the deal.

Halahla continues to have access to lawyers and medical treatment, he added.
