RAMALLAH, GAZA,(PIC)– Israeli occupation authority has renewed, on Wednesday, the administrative detention of the MP Abdel Rahman Zeidan for another six months one day before his due release.
The change and reform bloc stated in a statement that the occupation has renewed the administrative detention of the MP Abdel Rahman Zeidan for six months for the third time running under the pretext that he poses a real threat to the safety and security of Israel.
The occupation forces had arrested thirty Palestinian MPs and ministers most of them affiliated with Hamas. They are being held in administrative detention, led by Dr. Aziz Dweik, speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council.
The International Campaign for Releasing the Abducted MPs called on the international parliamentary organizations to pressure the occupation to stop the Palestinian MPs’ administrative detention.
The MP Moshir Masri, head of the campaign, confirmed in a letter to the heads of the Arab Parliament, the European Parliament, the Arab Parliamentary Union and the Inter-Parliamentary Union, that the continuous Israeli violations against the Palestinian democratically elected MPs are a violation to the international law and the international resolutions.
He pointed out that the occupation renews the MPs’ administrative detention some of them for the fourth time, the MPs Mohammed Jamal Natsheh and Mohammed Badr,as well as many Palestinian prisoners. He added that this measure violates the recent agreement under Egyptian mediation that ended the Palestinian detainees’ hunger strike including the thirty Palestinian MPs which stipulates the occupation must end administrative detention policy.
The International Campaign for Releasing the Abducted MPs considers the Israeli measures against the abducted MPs as a crime, Masri said, adding that they were arrested by the occupation forces in total violation to the Parliamentary immunity, then they were held in administrative detention without charge, renewed for the fourth time without legal justification.
Masri called on the international parliamentary organizations to pressure the occupation for the release of the Legislative Council chairman and the abducted MPs, and to force it to respect international law and to stop its violations against the Palestinian MPs and their parliamentary immunity.
