RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Wadi’ Tamman (30), a Palestinian captive from the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, who suffers from epilepsy has lost his memory completely and no longer knows those around him, according to a Palestinian human rights organisation.
The prisoners and ex-prisoners society (Husam) said in a statement on Saturday that Tamman is serving a ten-year sentence, which he almost completed and that he was from the Nafha desert prison to the Negev prison, then after he suffered his memory loss he was transferred to Eishel prison.
The society further said that before his loss of memory, Tamman was suffering from depression and the prison administration failed to provide him with any treatment and now that he is suffering this loss of memory where he stopped recognising any of his colleagues in prison or remember his family the prison administration is completely neglecting him.
