GAZA, The higher national committee supporting prisoners has announced that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) had offered two prisoners from the Gaza Strip to set them free if they accepted exile.

Riyadh Al-Ashqar, the committee's spokesman, said in a press release on Friday that the IOA was offering prisoners their freedom coupled with exile or else they would be held indefinitely in administrative custody.

He said that the IOA offered Mohammed Mustafa his freedom in return for exile outside Palestine for medical treatment. Mustafa was sentenced for 12 years in 2000 and was paralyzed due to torture during interrogation followed by medical neglect.

Ashqar said that another prisoner Munir Abu Diba, who had completed his 11-year sentence, was offered deportation or detention for a long period. The IOA refused to release Abu Diba at the pretext that he did not carry a Palestinian ID and tried to deport him to Egypt and Jordan but both refused to receive him.

The spokesman recalled that three other prisoners from the West Bank were recently offered release along with banishment but they turned down the offer.

The committee, meanwhile, said that it had asked the union of parliaments of member countries in the organization of Islamic conference (OIC) scheduled to hold a meeting in Istanbul within two days to support the cause of Palestinian prisoners.

Mohammed Radwan, an official with the committee, said in a press release that his committee asked the union to establish an Islamic committee to activate the issue of those prisoners who are in danger of death in IOA jails.

Radwan asked professor Irfan Gündüz, a Turkish MP and head of the union's relations with Islamic countries, in a telephone conversation for an Islamic role against the IOA violations of the prisoners' rights.

Gündüz said that the issue would be prioritized at the meeting, which would adopt a practical position toward this humanitarian question.
