Minister: Autopsy shows Israel neglected prisoner

April 4, 2013 1:14 P.M. (Updated: April 11, 2013 4:23 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The results of an autopsy on the body of a Palestinian prisoner who died in Israeli custody show his death was caused by medical negligence, a Palestinian official said.

The results show that the Israeli prison service neglected the medical situation of Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh for several years, the minister of prisoners' affairs Issa Qaraqe said.

He accused Israel of deliberately neglecting the detainee who suffered from throat cancer for several years.

Qaraqe pointed out that Abu Hamdiyeh had been suffering from pain in his body since 2003, but Israeli prison authorities only gave him antibiotics and painkillers.
