Write to the FCDO about the urgent case of Palestinian political prisoner Walid Daqqah

Walid Daqqah is a 61-year-old Palestinian political prisoner who was diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow cancer in 2022. His condition has worsened because of medical neglect in Israeli prison, and the authorities have recently refused to release him on humanitarian grounds, despite his need for urgent medical care.

The British government has a legal obligation to uphold Palestinian human rights and the implementation of international humanitarian law, including in the case of prisoners’ rights. Our Palestinian partner organisation Addameer has asked us to write to the Foreign Office and urge them to press Israel to immediately and unconditionally release Walid Daqqah to safeguard his rights and ensure access to the medical treatment he needs.
