Yesterday Ghassan Najjar was able to telephone his parents from Petah Tikva interrogation facility, where he has been held in isolation since 31 August. He confirmed that bar his back pain, that he is now receiving medication for, he was doing well.
SFP would like to thank all those that wrote to the British Consulate and signed our online petition. We urge you to continue to email the Consulate (details below) and sign and share our petition as Ghassan is due back in Court, where a Judge could extend his detention again, on Sunday.
This demonstrates your solidarity and action really does make a difference. The Red Cross contacted the Israeli Prison Authorities and shortly afterwards Ghassan was able to make a short phone call home. We hope with your continued help, Ghassan will have full access to his lawyer and return home soon.
Please continue to write to the British Consulate in Jerusalem urging them to maintain pressure on the Israeli Authorities to release Ghassan safely to his family. Ghassan’s one year old, half British son, is very much looking forward to seeing his father.
You can email Suha Zeidan at the British Consulate in Jerusalem at Suha.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also sign and share our petition calling for the immediate release of Dr. Yousef Abdul Haq and Ghassan.
