Munther suffers from high blood pressure and is currently detained in Ofer prison, located in the West Bank, in bad conditions. 

Munther's trial is set to begin on the 21st February 2018.

Social Workers are human rights defenders, they stand up for peace, human rights and social justice. Munther Amira was standing up for basic social work values and principles. He was conducting his protest in a peaceful and non-violent way and should not have been arrested for his basic democratic right to free speech and to campaign for human rights concerns.
