The health condition of Palestinian prisoner Bassam al-Sayeh has seriously declined as a result of his exposure to maltreatment at the hands of his jailers in Megiddo prison, his family said Wednesday. His wife, who visited him recently, said her husband has suffered from serious health problems in heart and lungs and become unable to move properly.
She affirmed that her husband’s health declined as a result of the pressure and harsh treatement he was exposed to by Israeli interrogators and jailers. Prisoner Sayeh was detained on October 8, 2015 and his wife was also arrested later before she was released recently. His brother, Amjad, is also in an Israeli jail, serving a 20-year prison term.
