Freed prisoner to receive treatment in Austria

July 10, 2013 5:34 P.M. (Updated: July 12, 2013 11:32 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A medical center in Austria has agreed to treat freed prisoner Mohamad al-Taj.

Al-Taj, whose medical records were sent to Europe in May, was hoping a country would offer him a lung transplant. He told Ma’an that the minister of detainees received approval for him to be treated in a Veinna medical center.

The freed prisoner, who suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and heart hypertrophy, says he will be initially treated with medication then according to his body’s response the doctors will determine if a transplant is needed.

His treatment will be funded by the Palestinian Authority, which will transfer the expenses to the medical center, he added.

Al-Taj was released in April on health grounds, after carrying out two long-term hunger strikes.
