NABLUS, — Palestinian female captive, Qaherah al-Sa’di from the northern West Bank city of Jenin, who is serving a sentence of 3 life-terms plus 30 years in an Israeli occupation jail, has completed nine years in captivity.
Sa’di, who was arrested on 1 May 2001, told the lawyer of Tadamon for human rights that despite nine years in jail and her heavy sentence she still enjoys very high spirits and that she is certain of her liberation along with other fellow captives.
Sa’di has four children, Muhammad and Sandi are not allowed to visit her under security pretexts and Ra’fat and Dunia are allowed to visit. Her three brothers also are barred from visiting her because of security pretexts too.
She also told the lawyer about the conditions of 37 other female captives at the Damoun and Hasharon prisons who are not allowed to receive books, not allowed to get their hand work (such as embroidery) out of prison. The captives are denied meeting their captive husbands and are not accorded proper medical treatment.
Sa’di is one of five female captives serving life in Israeli occupation jails, the other four are: Ahlam al-Tamimi, serving 16 life terms, Amena Mona, Sana’ Shehada and Dua’a al-Jahhousi.
