Imprisoning Palestinian Women - by Stephen Lendman


A July 2008 Fact Sheet Series titled, "Behind the Bars: Palestinian Women in Israeli Prisons" was jointly prepared by the Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, the Palestinian Counseling Center (PCC), and Mandela Institute. Along with background information, it covered Israel's obligations under international law, prison conditions where they're held, medical neglect, and their educational rights restricted or denied.


Relevant International Laws Protecting Prisoners and Civilians in Times of Conflict, Including Women


The 1949 Third Geneva Convention applies to prisoners of war, replacing the 1929 Prisoners of War Convention. It broadened the categories of persons entitled to prisoner of war status and precisely defined the conditions and places of their captivity - especially with regard to allowed labor, financial resources, required treatment, and rules of judicial proceedings.


It specifically prohibited acts of:


-- "Violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;


-- Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, humiliating and degrading treatment;" and


-- judicial guarantees "recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples."
