Gaza lawyers to strike over prisoner death

Feb. 25, 2013 1:03 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 26, 2013 2:45 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Lawyers in Gaza will go on strike Tuesday to protest the death of Arafat Jaradat in Israeli custody, their union announced Monday.

Union official Salameh Bseiso told Ma'an that lawyers would hold a sit in at the union's office in Gaza City on Tuesday morning.

Bseiso said Israeli interrogators had killed 30-year-old Jaradat "in cold blood" and called on international organizations to intervene to protect Palestinian prisoners.

"We won't stay calm regarding this crime and we will make intensive calls with Arab lawyers to reveal Israeli crimes," Bseiso added.

The Palestinian Authority state pathologist was present at the autopsy on Jaradat's body, which was carried out in Israel.

"There were marks of torture on the back, marks of torture on the chest, a deep wound on the upper side of the shoulder, wounds alongside the spine and marks of torture underneath the skin," PA prisoners minister Issa Qaraqe said, based on the doctor's basic findings.
