Palestinian Media Assembly along with Palestinian Journalists Forum on Saturday condemned the continuation of the arrest of journalist Sami al-Saee by the Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces since last Thursday in Tulkarem city and the extension of his detention for continuing investigation.
The arrest of journalist Saee, correspondent of al-Fajr al-Jadid local TV, came two months after his release from Israeli jails where he had served a 9-month sentence over alleged incitement on Facebook.
Both institutions perceived the arrest of Saee as a new unjustified violation of the freedom of speech and called on the PA forces to immediately release him.
Palestinian media sources published data showed that 45 violations against Palestinian journalists were carried out last month including 15 offenses practiced by Palestinian authorities.
