Addameer’s Quarterly Update on Palestinian Prisoners covering the period between 15 April and 15 July 2011 is now available!
As always the Quarterly Update provides the most up-to-date detention and arrest statistics and a comprehensive overview of the important prisoner trends and news. This quarter, noteworthy trends included a notable increase in the arrest of Change and Reform parliamentarians, continued repression in East Jerusalem and the detention of 120 internationals who participated in the “Welcome to Palestine” initiative. In addition, the Quarterly Update gives background on individual prisoner cases, such as Ahmad Qatamish, Islam and Bassem Tamimi and Mohammed Halabiyeh, and summarizes the most relevant legal, UN and EU news, as well as Addameer’s activities over the reporting period.
For the first time since it was first published in April 2010, the Quarterly Update is also available in Arabic.
