Nablus / PNN – Calls are international to abolish the practice of Administrative Detention, a renewable sentence in Israeli prison imposed without charge or trial that can be extended at will.

The Palestinian Prisoner Society said today that the Israeli military court of Salem issued rulings recently extending the sentences of several people.

The Salem military court, built on northern West Bank lands, extended the sentence of Qusay Hussein Hamza from Dar Azzun for another month after already spending a year in Israeli prison. Asim Mazuz from the Jenin area, and a Tulkarem man were both extended as well. Wa’el Yassin was ordered to spend an additional month and pay 500 shekels.

The Prisoner Society reported Monday that the hearing of Yasser Abdul Ghani from Nablus’ Balata Refugee Camp has been postponed until the first of October while Salim Abu Saud from Nablus is scheduled for military court on 11 October.
