NEW YORK (MEMO) – United Nations human rights experts have urged the Zionist regime to immediately release Palestinian prisoner Ahmed Manasra, who was detained at 14 years old and has been suffering serious mental health conditions. “Ahmed’s imprisonment for almost six years has deprived him of childhood, family environment, protection, and all the rights he should have been guaranteed as a child,” the UN website reported the experts saying. “This case is haunting in many respects and his continuous detention, despite his deteriorating mental conditions, is a stain on all of us as part of the international human rights community,” the experts added.
The experts included Francesca Albanese, special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, and Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism.
