IOA exploiting Palestinian prisoners in experimenting new drugs
Jerusalemite MP Ahmed Atton has called for the formation of a fact-finding committee to look into the Israeli occupation authority’s use of Palestinian prisoners to experiment new medicines.
The Palestinian MP said in a press release on Friday that Palestinian prisoners, especially in Negev jail, are also exposed to radiations that caused cancer among a big number of them.
He said that the crimes against prisoners are met with silence on the part of the Palestinian Authority and the Arab countries.
Atton championed prioritizing the issues of Palestinian prisoners and Jerusalem this year, focusing all efforts on those two questions.
