Follow Ayed’s detention on
Ayed’s mother died on 27 December 2010, months after being diagnosed with an aggressive malignant tumor. Despite medical documentation showing the severity of her condition, Ayed was repeatedly denied permission to visit his mother. After her death, he was also denied permission to attend her funeral.
Ayed is the first case in Addameer’s new Prisoners at Risk campaign, launched on 17 April 2011, Palestinian Prisoners’ Day. The campaign will raise awareness of specific cases of Palestinian political prisoners whose detention presents serious dangers.
