PHR-I's chairman asked the Israel Prison Service (IPS) chief medical officer, Dini Orkin, why Hana's hospitalization was denied. She responded saying the IPS commissioner wants another medical opinion, despite the urgency given her health.

Especially troubling is what Hana told her doctor. During March 19 transfers, she was grossly mistreated, including being "dragged across the floor." Doing so aggravated her weak condition.

Hana's also being pressured to begin eating. Force-feeding is threatened despite clear medical ethics issues and international treaties prohibiting the practice. Attempts have also been made "to undermine her confidence and trust in her PHR-I doctor."

She's been lied to, including spurious claims that he doesn't care about her. In fact, he's her best hope to survive. 

At the same time, a military court of appeals judge again postponed ruling on her case. No announced date was given.

"The judge requested a detailed medical report on Ms. Shalabi's health condition, which has been prepared by the PHR-Israel doctor and submitted to the court."

Addameer lawyer Mahmoud Hassan said:

"(T)he Israeli military prosecution's concern is to get Hana to end her hunger strike as opposed to seriously considering the reasons underlying Hana's protest, including the infringement on her right to fair trial and right to an effective defense."
