The cancer patient detainee Mahmoud Abu Warda is facing difficult living conditions in Remon prison

May 26, 2024

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs revealed the detention and living conditions faced by detainees in Remon prison, which are imposed on them based on the escalation policy commenced since October 7.

The commission emphasized, according to the attorney’s visit to Remon prison, that the administration of prison attacked the detainee Mahmoud Abu Warda, who suffers from cancer, during arrest in 19/10/2023, where the assault was repeated many times during transferring him from prison to another, which caused bruises and wounds in his face and arms, while the so-called Alramla prison’s clinic did not provide any treatment.

Detainee Abu Warda said to the attorney that he suffers from tumor in the kidney and he is supposed to have a surgery last October, but his detention prevented that. He is in need of a catheterization procedure in his heart, but his case is ignored and he is exposed to overt medical ignorance despite his serious health condition.

Detainees of Remon said that food is still bad and insufficient, as the administration of prison reduced the amount of bread, giving one loaf of bread for three detainees, in the light of the lack of summer clothes despite the hot weather in the prison, in addition to all sanctions imposed on them since October 7.
