GAZA, --The Hadarim prison administration barred 13 Palestinian captives from completing their university education as a punishment for protesting occupation authority's measures against prisoners and their families.
The Prisoners' Studies Center quoted Tawfiq Abu Naim, one of prisoner leaders, as saying that the Hadarim prison administration was not satisfied with barring prisoners from taking secondary education exams, barring them from enrolling at Palestinian and Arab universities, limiting the numbers allowed to enrol at the [Israeli] Open University, barring entry of books and other hurdles in the way of the prisoners' education, but it took the step of barring those already studying at universities from completing their education.
Abu Naim added that the Hadarim prison administration allowed only 25 prisoners to study at the [Israeli] Open University, but it has lately punished thirteen of them by denying them completion of their education including some prisoners who were only one term away from graduation.
