Anderson calls for immediate release of Heba al-Labadi

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has called for the immediate release of Heba al-Labadi, a Palestinian woman who has been on hunger strike in an Israeli prison. 

Speaking on the 41st day of Heba’s hunger strike, Martina Anderson MEP said:

“Heba al-Labadi has suffered horrific treatment in an Israeli interrogation centre after being arrested on her way to a wedding with her family and sentenced to administrative detention. 

“After 30 days of relentless interrogation and psychological torture, Heba has been denied access to a lawyer and her family.  

“She has now entered her 41st day on hunger strike. 

“The EU and Irish Government must act on this gross violation of international law – Israel must not be allowed to act with impunity.

“Heba al-Labadi must be released immediately, and I would urge people to support the days of action from the 8th – 11th November in support of the Palestinian prisoners.”
