Detainee Sharawne to continue in his hunger strike

Palestine Information Center – 16/05/2012

AL-KHALIL — Detainee Ayman Sharawne has urged the Egyptian government to put an end to the Israeli violations of the Egyptian-brokered prisoners’ exchange deal after he was arrested only three months after his release in that deal.

Human rights sources told the PIC on Wednesday that Sharawne was adamant on persisting in his hunger strike until the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) releases him.

The IOA claims that he was detained anew in light of “secret information”, which was not disclosed in court.

Sharawne attended a hearing into his case on Tuesday in which three judges presided over the court in Ofer to look into the Israeli prosecution’s demand for his re-arrest to serve his remaining sentence.

He had served ten years of his 38-year sentence when he was released in the exchange deal.

The court adjourned ruling into his case for two weeks.

Sharawne started the hunger strike on 17 April along with the other prisoners but did not end it with them after their demands were met.

He said that he would continue in his strike to highlight his case along with other similar cases.

The IOA re-arrested six Palestinians, who were released in the deal in the West Bank, at the pretext they violated conditions of the deal and returned to resistance activity. One of them was Hana Shalabi, who was deported to Gaza after her release from her second detention.
