Adopted by the World and Israeli Medical Associations, the Malta Declaration states:

"Physicians need to satisfy themselves that food or treatment refusal is the individual's voluntary choice. Hunger strikers should be protected from coercion." 

"Physicians can often help to achieve this and should be aware that coercion may come from the peer group, the authorities or others, such as family members."

"Physicians or other health care personnel may not apply undue pressure of any sort on the hunger striker to suspend the strike. Treatment or care of the hunger striker must not be conditional upon suspension of the hunger strike."

When Hassan resumed eating, he was in critical condition. During his hunger strike, he was severely beaten. He sustained injuries. 

Israeli prison doctors refused treatment. Independent physicians were denied permission to see him.

He's been imprisoned for nearly a year uncharged. Extending his term another six months blatantly violates agreement terms. Addameer fears he'll resume striking and risk death. He's extremely frail and can't tolerate much more.

Addameer also believes this breach means others will follow. Hundreds of hunger strikers will be betrayed.

Numerous other violations already occurred. Others will follow. Striker Dirar Abu Sisi remains isolated. He wasn't returned to the general prison population as promised. Another Palestinian was also placed in solitary confinement.
