#Israel re-jailed 8 Palestinians freed as part of the swap deal

Note from occpal: Previously by Israel released prisoners received a Presidential Pardon of Peres. Also called Amnesty or Clemency by law to restore ones civil rights and being totally pardoned for the (alleged) crimes if even in the case of Palestinians’ ever charged before at all. Re-arresting pardoned prisoners without any charge is a severe violation of human rights.

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian center for prisoner studies said the Israeli regime violated its prisoner swap agreement with the resistance and re-jailed eight Palestinian prisoners after they were released as part of the deal.

This came in a report issued on Tuesday on the first anniversary of the swap deal that were made between the Palestinian resistance and the Israeli occupation regime and led to the liberation of 1,027 Palestinian men and women from Israeli jails in October 2011.

Information director of the center Riyadh Al-Ashqar said the Israeli regime justifies the recapture of these Palestinian ex-detainees by claiming there is a military order number 186 that was devised a few days before the signing of the swap deal and enable it to rearrest the released Palestinians based on confidential evidence.

Ashqar added that this Israeli justification proved the bad faith it held before the signing of the swap agreement with the Palestinian side.

Apart from these eight prisoners, the official noted that the Israeli regime also rearrested other Palestinian ex-detainees who were released as part of the 2011 swap deal, but later it released them again or exiled them as happened to the Palestinian woman Hana Shalabi who were re-kidnapped and then banished to Gaza following her hunger strike.

In a related context, the Palestinian information center (PIC) issued a long report in Arabic commemorating the first anniversary of the swap deal that falls tomorrow, September 18.

The report said the anniversary day is not a normal day in the history of the Palestinian people because it has changed the lives of hundreds of Palestinian families whose sons and daughters were released following a deal described by many political observers as “honorable.”

The PIC report also included statements made by some of the ex-detainees who obtained their freedom in this deal that is known locally as “Wafa Al-Ahrar” (the commitment of freemen).

The ex-detainees, in general, expressed their appreciation to the Palestinian resistance for fulfilling their pledge to release prisoners and affirmed that their freedom was impossible without this prisoner swap deal.
