27 more administrative detention orders issued against Palestinian prisoners

Israeli occupation authorities issued 27 administrative detention orders for periods between three and six months between 7 and 18 December, reported Palestinian lawyer Mahmoud Halabi of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society.

Halabi noted that seven of the orders were newly issued against prisoners who had just been arrested, while 20 were renewals of existing detention orders. Included among these was the order of renewal against Palestinian journalist Omar Nazzal, member of the General Secretariat of the Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate, as well as that against Mohammed Abu Sakha, the Palestinian circus performer whose continued imprisonment for over a year has sparked international protests. Member of the Palestinian Legislative Council Azzam Salhab and ill academic lecturer Issam al-Ashqar also received new 6-month administrative detention orders during this time.

There are over 700 Palestinian prisoners imprisoned without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation under administrative detention orders. Issued for one to six months at a time, these orders are indefinitely renewable and Palestinians are routinely detained for years at a time with no charge, no trial, on the basis of secret evidence.
