Abdul Rahim Abbasi, 26

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Abdul Rahim Abbasi, 26, was sentenced by the Israeli Magistrates Court yesterday to 28 months imprisonment. Abbasi was arrested on 14 May 2010 on suspicion of involvement in clashes that took place in Silwan during that month, with his hearing initially scheduled to take place on the day set for his wedding day, one week after his arrest.

This is the third time that Abbasi has been arrested by Israeli police, having been detained for a period of 6 months in 2002 and 1 year in 2007. Abbasi’s family have received news of his new detention with great sadness, particularly in light of the continued prolongment of his wedding date.
