Samer Issawi, 33 years old, from the village of Issawiya on the outskirts of Jerusalem, was released from Israeli prison as part of Shalit deal, but was arrested a few months ago on suspicion of violating the terms of his release. Samer is being held in administrative detention, without trial, and indefinitely, while the army seeks to re-sentence him to the remainder of the 30-year sentence from his previous conviction. Ina protest of his illegal arrest, Issawi started a hunger strike, that has gone on for over 200 days. His life is in danger.
