'Israel' hampers decision on Daqqa's eligibility for parole hearing
The Israeli occupation, despite a 4-hour deliberation, has not yet made a decision on the eligibility of cancer-stricken Walid Daqqa to show up in front of an early release committee.
Commenting on the "right of the prisoner Walid Daqqa to appear before the early release committee," the family of the Palestinian prisoner affirmed that any decision or sentence that does not lead to his "immediate release is an authorization for his execution."
The family and the campaign to release the prisoner said, in a statement, that “after deliberations that lasted 4 hours, today, Sunday, June 18, 2023, the occupation court closed in Maasiyahu Prison in Ramla, without deciding on the prisoner Walid Daqqa’s eligibility to appear before the early release committee," adding that "knowing that the court judge will issue his decision within a week of its date."
Moreover, the statement underscored, "We consider any decision or ruling that does not lead to the immediate release of the prisoner Daqqqa to be an authorization for this execution through delaying the decision on his release despite the very high degree of danger given his health condition which was even recognized by the report of the occupation prison service."
While "Israel" has been pursuing its policy of deliberate medical negligence against #Palestinian cancer-stricken prisoner Walid Daqqa, a far-right Israeli politician said, according to Israeli media, that he prays that cancer will spread in Daqqa's body.#Palestine pic.twitter.com/4Sq2RacUDt— Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) May 31, 2023
Significantly, it was also highlighted that "despite this report and the termination of his actual sentence 86 days ago, the court has not yet decided to release him immediately."
Earlier in the day, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said if a decision is made regarding his right to appear before the committee, it will take into account his appeal for an early release, and if a decision is made to reject the appeal, there will be legal action taken to dispute the decision.
Daqqa is currently lying in the hospital, cuffed to his bed, and in a very critical condition.
Waed Association: Israeli Occupation seeks revenge against Walid Daqqa
Last week, the Waed Prisoners' Affairs Association reported that Walid Daqqa's health continues to deteriorate as he remains bedridden at the "Ramla Prison" clinic as the Israeli occupation rejected, once again, all efforts to release Daqqa, who had hopes of spending his final days outside prison.
"The occupation's insistence on rejecting all solutions comes in a clear context of vengeance against the prisoner Daqqa and settling their account with him."
The Association indicated that 17 prisoners in the "Ramla Prison" are currently ill and suffering from chronic illnesses. It also noted that Palestinian prisoner Asif Al-Rifai has been one of the most serious cases where cancer had spread throughout his body last month.
Daqqa's condition worsened as cancer spread throughout his entire body. However, Daqqa's health keeps deteriorating given the systematic medical neglect policy imposed by the Israeli occupation, whose last victim was Sheikh Khader Adnan who was martyred in May.
