The Maan News Agency reported on Wednesday that two prisoners detained by the Palestinian Military Police in Qalqilia District, in the northern part of the West Bank, denied allegation that they were tortured for membership with the Hamas movement.
The two prisoners, Eyad Salmi and Basil Abu Suleiman, were interviewed by a Maan reporter and said that they are receiving proper treatment without any attacks or humiliation.
Several weeks ago, the agency reported that the two prisoners voiced an appeal to President Mahmoud Abbas to intervene as they were being abused in prison. The two prisoners said they had no knowledge of what was published as they did not voice any appeal.
The two prisoners seemed to be in a good health and no torture marks were present on their bodies.
Head of the military police, representatives of the Public Relations Office of the Palestinian Security and the mothers of the two detainees also attended the interview.
The two prisoners, former staff of the Civil Defense, were arrested more than 100 days ago and were sentenced to six months for practicing political activities while on duty.
