MK Tibi: Government bears 'legal, moral responsibility for prisoner death'
Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi (United List Ta'al), who was aware of the request for Abu Hamdiyeh's early release, said the government bears the "legal and moral responsibility for his death.


"The authorities refused to release Abu Hamdiyeh even after he underwent chemotherapy. Israeli (governments) used to release Jewish prisoners on medical grounds when they had a cough, but in this case someone decided to seal (Abu Hamdiyeh's) fate." (Hassan Shaalan)
