Prisoners Commission appeals ruling banning lawyers’ visits to prisoners

RAMALLAH, The Detainees and Ex-Detainees Commission appealed with the Israeli prosecution office against a decision banning lawyers’ visits to Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

It said in a statement that the Israel Prison Services (IPS) has banned the visits since the outbreak of violence in the Naqab prison in the south of Israel two weeks ago.

It said the ban is still in force either by directly banning the visit or by obstructing the lawyers’ visits by imposing strict conditions or pretexts that would make the visits very difficult.
