Today SFP member and community activist Ghassan Najjar again had his interrogation order renewed by an Israeli Military Judge inside Petah Tikva interrogation facility. This is the fourth renewal of Ghassan’s interrogation order since his kidnapping on 27 August 2014. To date he has had no access to proper legal advice, other than a short conference with his lawyer in the few minutes in which he appears in Court.
Ghassan’s detention comes as SFP, Nablus popular resistance, organisations and associations are united in their condemnation of the detention on nearly 7,000 Palestinians in Israeli Apartheid Prisons. Tomorrow SFP will join other groups, including Palestinian political parties, in calling on the International Committee of the Red Cross to fulfill their obligations to Palestinian detainees and apply pressure to Apartheid Israel for their immediate and unconditional release.
In the meantime we ask you to continue to email the British Consulate in Jerusalem asking them to use their diplomatic wait to ensure Ghassan has unfettered access to his lawyer and is ultimately released. You can email the Consulate via Suha Zeidan – firstname.lastname@example.org
