IOA deprives Palestinian prisoner from seeing her relatives for 3 months

The Israeli prison authority in Hasharon jail has imposed a fine of almost 100 dollars on prisoner Amal Fayez Juma and deprived her of family visits for three months.


Juma, 25, is serving an 11-year-term and was fined for “trivial, incorrect reasons”, her lawyer of the Nafha society said.


He said that Juma”s family had repeatedly asked a number of legal institutions to pressure the Israeli prisons authority to allow treatment of their relative because of her health condition that is constantly worsening.


Juma, who is from Asker refugee camp in Nablus, suffered from rheumatism before her arrest on 5/4/2004 and her condition deteriorated because no medical treatment was accorded to her. She is also suffering at present from kidney inflammation and hair loss and her teeth are dropping.
