[ 21/01/2011 - 07:30 PM ]

WEST BANK, (PIC)-- Zionist courts have ruled to extend the detention of Palestinians until end of procedures (open-ended) on 57 occasions since mid-January.
The Ofer court ruled to extend the detention of 18 Palestinians, the Askalan court made six such extentions, the Salem court made 12 extensions, while the Maskoubeyyah and Jalama courts made 10 extensions each.
These extensions will give the Israeli intelligence unlimited time to keep these 76 Palestinian detainees in prisons and interrogation centres to try and get confessions out of them, usually under torture.
