OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, NABLUS, (PIC)– An Israeli Court in the occupied city of Jerusalem has refused on Tuesday the appeal submitted ​​by the lawyer for the Jerusalemite MP Ahmed Attoun, detained in the occupation jails.

Palestine Prisoners’ Center for Studies said in a statement that the Israeli court in Jerusalem has sentenced MP Attoun to six months in administrative detention.

The Center stated that the occupation re-arrested the representative of the parliamentary bloc of Change and Reform affiliated to Hamas movement, on 4 February 2013 from the city of Ramallah.

It pointed out that the Jerusalemite MP had been arrested several times by the occupation forces. He was then deported to the city of Ramallah, under the pretext that his presence in the city of Jerusalem is dangerous to the security of the occupation.

The Center called on the world’s parliaments “to intervene to protect the Palestinian MPs from the occupation’s continued crimes, and to put pressure on the Israeli authorities to release the 15 kidnapped MPs, as most of them are held under the administrative detention without charge.”

Meanwhile Ahrar Center for Prisoners studies and human rights denounced an Israeli court decision to uphold the order to hold the liberated prisoner leader Rafat Nassif, 46 from the city of Tulkarem, in administrative detention for six months.

Ahrar noted that Nassif had served in the former administrative detention 88 months.

Fuad Al-Khuffash, the director of the center said that Rafat Nasif is an ex- detainee. The Israeli occupation re-arrested him on 11 February 2013, shortly after his release from its jails.

Al-Khuffash added, that prisoner Rafat Nassif, is one of the leaders of Hamas in the West Bank. He was arrested many times, and mostly held in administrative detention.

Ahrar Center’s director called for ending file of administrative detention, under which the Palestinian prisoners are held without charge or trial.
