Detained Head Of Birzeit University Student Senate Continues Hunger Strike

Le président du syndicat étudiant de l'Université de Bir Zeit poursuit sa grève de la faim

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported, Thursday, the Omar Hasan al-Kiswani, the head of the Students’ Senate in Birzeit University in central West Bank, started the hunger strike three days ago, protesting his detention and lengthy interrogation without charges.

Al-Kiswani is held at the al-Maskobiyya interrogation center, in Jerusalem, and has been subject to abuse, torture and lengthy interrogations up to 18 hours a day.

Lawyer Ma’moun al-Hasheem of the PPS, said the detainee informed an Israeli judge about his hunger strike, and the reasons for holding it.

The court issued an order denying al-Kiswani from meeting with his defense attorney until March 26th, while he remains under interrogation.

Ma’moun stated that the court ordered al-Kiswani any further interrogation for seven more days, without allowing him any legal representation under the pretext of “having a secret file against him.”

It is worth mentioning that al-Kiswani was kidnapped by undercover Israeli soldiers on March 7th, after the officers infiltrated into Birzeit University campus.
