PALESTINIAN PRISONERS

*INCLUDES PALESTINIAN PRISONERS, PRISON CONDITIONS, ACCESS TO LAWYERS*

PALESTINIAN PRISONERS:

- Since 1967, approximately 20% of Palestinians in Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) have been detained - over 650,000 people.
- A Palestinian detainee can be interrogated for a total period of 180 days, during which he/she can also be denied lawyer visits for a period of 90 days.
- T°rture during interrogation has been legalized within the Israeli judicial system.
- Confessions extracted through torture are admissible in Israeli court.

PRISON CONDITIONS:

- Detainees are held in overcrowded prison tents that are often threadbare and do not provide for adequate shelter against extreme weather.
- Prisoners are not provided adequate food rations, neither in quantity nor quality, nor provided with clean clothes or adequate cleaning supplies.
- Many of the detainees currently being held in military detention camps were injured during their arrests and have not been provided the necessary medical attention, like those who suffer from chronic illnesses.

ACCESS TO LAWYERS:

Palestinian lawyers from the OPT are not permitted any special travel privileges in order to defend their clients. They are subjected to the same travel restrictions as all Palestinians in the OPT. Those lawyers who are able to access their clients have extremely high case loads and are often subjected to strip searches and humiliating treatment when visiting their clients.
