RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has tried to blackmail a Palestinian prisoner into accepting deportation in return for his freedom, the international Tadamun foundation for human rights said on Monday.

Ahmed Al-Beitawi, a researcher with the foundation, said that the IOA intelligence offered Rami Suleiman, from Marada village in Salfit province, to release him on condition that he would be deported outside of the West Bank.

He said that Suleiman, who was detained since May 2007, refused the offer. He was sentenced to 40 months detention and at conclusion of his term he was held in administrative custody ever since then.

Suleiman, 32, was interrogated for 100 days during the Aqsa intifada in 2001 during which he was subjected to cruel torture methods then was sentenced to 45 months. He was released, after serving 29 months, in a prisoners exchange deal with the Lebanese Hizbullah party.

He was again arrested in 2004 only seven months after his release and was sentenced to 18 months and was released in 2006. He spent 100 months in Israeli jails so far on aggregate.
