A Palestinian official says Israel is violating the human rights of Palestinian prisoners. Issa Qaraqe, the Palestinian Authority’s minister for prisoners’ affairs made the comments at a UN meeting in Vienna on the plight of Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention facilities. However, Israel denies this. Qaraqe says some prisoners are being held without a trial and adds that a small number are minors. Regina Rohrbach spoke with Abdou Salam Diallo, Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and Permanent Representative of Senegal to the UN about the meeting.
