Israeli interrogators question Jihad prisoners

[ 23/04/2011 - 08:22 AM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Israeli interrogators summoned and questioned a number of Islamic Jihad prisoners in occupation jails over connection to the issue of the lawyers charged with passing information from Jihad prisoners to their leadership and vice versa.
The Palestinian center for prisoners' studies, in a statement on Friday, quoted Palestinian prisoners in Nafha as saying that four prisoners were summoned and interrogated over the issue, adding that they denied any relations with the lawyers.
It said, however, that the prisoners were denied lawyers' visit after the questioning.
The director of the center Ra'fat Hamdona described the Israeli step of denying lawyers' visits as very serious, calling for filing a lawsuit against Israel and its prisons service at international courts for denying basic rights of those prisoners.
The Israeli police had detained four Palestinian lawyers from the 1948 occupied land on Wednesday over suspicion of passing information between Jihad leaders and those prisoners and between Jihad prisoners in various Israeli jails.
