Urgent Action update: Hunger-striking detainee admitted to hospital

The Palestinian authorities have transferred social justice activist Suha Jbara to a hospital in Jericho following a deterioration in her health condition. She has been on hunger strike since 22 November to protest against her arbitrary detention. Her next court hearing is scheduled for 20 December.

Take action.

Please write immediately in Arabic or English or your own language, calling on the authorities to:

  • Release Suha Jbara immediately unless she is promptly charged with a recognizable criminal offense;
  • Ensure that, Suha Jbara is not punished in any way for her hunger strike, is treated humanely at all times, and given access to adequate medical care by independent health professionals, including if necessary, in a hospital which can provide adequate specialist treatment;
  • Order a prompt, impartial, independent and effective investigation into Suha Jbara’s allegations of torture and other ill-treatment in Jericho Detention and Interrogation Centre and ensure that any officials identified as responsible are immediately suspended and subjected to disciplinary and criminal proceedings.
