Israeli Occupation Authority Using Prisoners as Medical Guinea Pigs

Former prisoner and expert on prisoners' affairs Abdulnasser Farwana has said that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) was performing more than 5,000 experimental drug tests on Palestinian prisoners per annum.

Farwana said in a research paper presented at the Algerian conference for support of Palestinian prisoners that the Israeli health ministry was granting permits to medicine companies to perform those tests on 15% of prisoners.

He said that the tests explain the increasing number of prisoners who suffer from various illnesses and the emergence of strange and malignant diseases among the prisoners, which endanger their health.'
