Addameer said that its lawyer Samer Sam’an managed to speak through a phone call to three of the prisoners and they informed him that they were not tested for the coronavirus disease. Their temperature is taken twice a day, and no other medical tests have been made so far.
Sam’an was able to talk to the prisoners put in quarantine only after Addameer had repeatedly filed requests to the Israeli military prosecution to communicate with the detainees and check on them.
The four detainees were moved on Thursday, 19 March, from Petah Tikva interrogation center to Ramle prison clinic without being informed about the reason behind the transfer. They later knew that they were suspected of contracting coronavirus from an Israeli interrogator working there.
