In a report received by Abductees’ Mothers Association, it was brought to our attention, by families, that 14 arbitrarily arrested persons held at Be’er Ahmed Prison had gone on a hunger strike, protesting holding off their legal procedures which led to completely stopping the processes of their cases. At Abductees’ Mothers Association, we condemn holding off the legal and lawful procedures of the abductees’ case, which started on December 19th, 2020, and ended on December 24th, 2020.
The hold off has resulted in prolonging the period of the detention and suffering, as they are subjected to mistreatment and prevention of any rights, leading to vulnerability to diseases, health deterioration, and slow death.
We, At Abductees’ Mothers Association, rallied here by the house of the former judge of Criminal Court to demand resuming the legal procedures of the case of 14 arbitrarily arrested abductees held at Be’er Ahmed in order to save their lives, especially after starting the hunger strike.
We demand the government and international community to stand behind the case of abductees, and do them justice by pressuring to resume the procedures and ending their arbitrary detention to save their lives.
