Gaza, ALRAY - The military court of Ofer rejected an appeal made by a jailed MP's lawyer against the decision to put him administrative detention, a monitoring society said.

Palestine’s Prisoners Center for Studies said in a press statement that the Israeli occupation re-abducted the Hebron lawmaker, Mohammad Badr, 58, on October 29, 2013 and ordered a six-month administrative detention against him.

Badr’s lawyer filed the request fear that the current detention is renewed, but the Ofer court refused to allow his appeal, the center added. 

It noted that the Hamas-affiliated lawmaker was arrested and put under administrative detention several times by the Israeli occupation spending more than 10 years in jail.

The center said Badr suffers from high blood pressure, prostate problems and swollen feet, warning that the Israel Prison Service (IPS) is intentionally stalling his treatment.

Months ago, the IPS decided to take an X-ray for him to recognize the cause of his illness. However, he has since been ignored and the X-ray was not conducted, which could cause his health to fail, the center added.
