February 24, 2013 18:12

The investigation into the death of Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat whilst detained in an Israeli jail  "must relate to the full circumstances of the event, and not only to the conduct of those directly responsible for his wellbeing at the time," B'Tselem said in a statement Sunday.

The human rights organization called for the investigation to be "independent, effective and transparent, and be finalized swiftly" in order to relate to the full circumstances of the event.
