PNN – Fifteen of the activists from the Freedom Waves to Gaza flotilla came before an Israeli court on Tuesday, and were advised they could be held for up to 2 months without charges or a trial.

One Australian, one British, two Canadians, and 14 Irish activists remain imprisoned by Israel after five days. In order to avoid further incarceration, the judge told the detainees they could sign a statement declaring that they entered Israel voluntarily and illegally.
Some of the Freedom Waves to Gaza participants have already been deported at their own expense. Upon their release they have been able to reveal details of what occurred when the Israeli military took control of their boats.
Jihan Hafiz, a journalist aboard the Canadian boat Tahrir, described how Israeli commandos held guns to the back and head of fellow passenger Michael Coleman from Australia. Hafiz also stated that tasers were pointed at Coleman’s chest during the ordeal.
Hafiz herself spent three nights in prison, where she and other activists were strip searched by the Israeli military. As well as being denied phone calls, some of the imprisoned activists have reported being handcuffed, shackled, and deprived of sleep.
