“The Foreign Minister of the State of Palestine, Riyad Al-Malki sent urgent letters to UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki Moon, to High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, to the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and to Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter…
In his letters, he stressed that the reason for prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh’s death as a Martyr (Shahid) was the occupation authorities’ neglect and deliberate delay in treating him.”

Note: Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh was a Hamas member who served life in prison for recruiting and training terrorists, preparing explosives for suicide bombings, attempted murder, and possession of weapons. He died of cancer while being treated at the Israeli Soroka Hospital in April 2013.
