Prisoner's medical condition deteriorates

July 4, 2013 11:42 P.M. (Updated: July 5, 2013 3:35 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian prisoner's health is seriously deteriorating and Israel has transferred from hospital to a prison clinic, a lawyer said Wednesday.

Motasem Radad was moved from Meir Hospital to Ramle prison clinic, Palestinian Prisoner Society lawyer Jawad Boulos said.

Radad suffers several symptoms including hypertension and a weak immune system.

He has several infections which doctors have been unable to treat and and has recently developed blurred vision and a weak heart.

Boulos blamed Radad's deteriorating condition on the medication he was given, including daily cortisone shots that the lawyer said had weakened his bones and impeded his movement.

A doctor who examined Radad on Wednesday recommended further medical tests, Boulos said.

Rabad requested an early release on health grounds in June.

In a letter he sent to a human rights organization in Jerusalem he said that he had the symptoms for five years but doctors still cannot determine the cause of these symptoms.

Radad has served seven years of his 20-year sentence.
