Israel sentences administrative detained Hamas MP Hassan Yousef to 30 months

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 (also from the Wafa al Ahrar deal) without any charge is a severe violation of human rights.

142763_345x230[1]RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Hamas lawmaker Hassan Yousef was sentenced to 30 months in Israeli jail after serving several administrative detention terms, his family said on Sunday.

Israel’s Ofer military court handed down the sentence on Thursday. Yousef is appealing the sentence and another court session will be held on Tuesday, relatives said.

Yousef, an MP for the Hamas-affiliated Change and Reform Bloc, was detained on Nov. 1, 2011 with his son from his home in Beituniya, near Ramallah, and held without charge.

He had recently left jail in an August prisoner release deal. Yousef had been sentenced to a six-year term for “membership of a terrorist organization,” and freed after two years.
