RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Ahrar center for Prisoners studies and human rights has appealed Reporters Without Borders, the Federation of Arab Journalists and the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, to immediately intervene to stop the suffering of captive journalist Amer Abu Arafah, 29, from al-Khalil.
Abu Arafah’s administrative detention has been renewed by the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) for the fourth time in a row.
The journalist Amer Abu Arafah, is a correspondent for the Shehab News Agency, he was arrested on 21 August 2011 and since that date he is under the administrative detention, which was renewed every six months. He was due for release on 19 February 2013, according to the center.
The center wondered, how long silence toward violations of the occupation against the Palestinian journalists will prevail, and why the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate doesn’t move to expose the practices of the occupation against journalists? Why not organize more international campaigns to highlight the suffering of these prisoners.
