End of Hunger Strike Welcomed-McCartney

21 February, 2012 - by Raymond McCartney

Sinn Féin MLA and former hungerstriker Raymond McCartney has welcomed the agreement that has allowed Kadar Adnan to end his protest after 66 days.

Mr McCartney said:

“I am delighted to hear that Kadar Adnan has come to an agreement that has allowed him to end his fast after 66 days.  It is imperative that Kadar is now given immediate medical treatment in order for him to make a full recovery.

“I would also call for international agencies to be allowed to monitor his health and treatment in the days and weeks ahead. 

“Despite this agreement Kadar Adnan is still being interned without charge and should immediately be released back to his family.  The Israeli Government must be pressurised into adhering to international human right standards and the treatment of Kadar Adnan has fallen well short of this.”
