It pointed out that the occupation courts continue their intransigence and refusal to respond to the prisoner’s demand to end his administrative detention.

About two weeks ago, they issued a decision confirming his detention for a period of 4 months, despite medical reports confirming the seriousness of his health condition, and the prison administration refuses to transfer him to a civilian hospital.

It is reported that the prisoner Abu Hawash has been detained since 10/27/2020, and upon his arrest, Israeli prison administration issued administrative detention order  against him for a period of 6 months and was renewed several times. (LKG/RE1)
