IPS refuses court order allowing prisoner to phone her family

[ 18/05/2011 - 07:53 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The Israeli prison service (IPS) has refused to comply with a supreme court order allowing prisoner Ahlam Al-Tamimi to contact her parents in Jordan by telephone.
Tamimi had filed a case at the supreme court demanding her right to contact her parents on the phone since all her family members live in Jordan and visits are only allowed for first degree relatives.
The court approved of the phone call as her right but the IPS refused and did not accept even to discuss it.
Tamimi was arrested in 2001 and is serving 16 life sentences on charges of aiding resistance fighters.
