PHROC's letter to Catherine Ashton regarding on-going Prisoners Hunger Strikes
 
The Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council (PHROC) sent a letter to The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Vice- President of the European Commission, on the issue of the on-going hunger strikes of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, who are protesting the unjust administrative detention policy which allows Israeli authorities to detain Palestinians without charge or trail, and without being informed of their charges or trial basis based on "secrete evidence".
The letter states that June 1st is the 38th consecutive day for a majority of the strikers, who have reached a critical stage and require immediate intervention. The PHROC and the Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs called on Ashton to publicly voice concern over Israel's policy of administrative detention and pressure Israel to honor its previous agreements, especially those of 14 May 2014.
