Palestinian female prisoners complain against Nashon

[ 19/09/2010 - 04:00 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Forty Palestinian female prisoners sued the Israeli Nahshon unit that is specialized in quelling prisoners for maltreatment.
The prisoners said that the Nahshon forces, which guard them to and back from court hearings, hospitals and prisons, humiliates those prisoners and mistreat them. They said that the soldiers refuse to allow them to go to bathrooms or drink water during the long periods of transport.
They also said that the soldiers cram them in vans and take them to prison from 0300 am and take them back to prison by 1100 pm despite the fact that the distance between jails and courts only take one hour.
Human rights reports had said that Palestinian women prisoners are routinely insulted and threatened by the Israeli guards.
