Medically neglected prisoner Abu Diyak in critical condition and could die any time

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Committee of Palestinian Prisoners and former Prisoners on Sunday warned that the medical condition of the prisoner Sami Abu Diyak (38 years old is deteriorating due to the Israeli medical negligence policy.

The committee said in a statement that Abu Diyak cannot stand up and that he was sent to Assaf Harofeh hospital three times last week, where he was given three blood units, as he suffers from severe blood shortage.

The statement said that Abu Diyak could die any moment, as he also suffers from advanced-stage cancer. He suffers from severe pain, which cannot be relieved using pain killers any more.

Sami Abu Diyak, from Jenin, has been suffering from cancer for over three years. He fell ill due to a deliberate medical mistake, when he had a rectal surgery in Soroka Israeli hospital back in September 2015. Israeli doctors removed 80 cm of his intestines, which caused severe inflammation in addition to intoxication and kidney and lung failure. After that he had three further surgeries and remained under anesthesia for one month.

Abu Diyak was arrested in 2002 and sentenced to three life sentences and 30 years. He is one of 13 sick prisoners, who are held in the clinic of Ramleh jail. They only get pain killers as they are subjected to deliberate medical negligence, which slowly kills them.
