Osama Makbul, a lawyer at the Tadamun foundation for human rights, said that the IOA renewed the administrative custody of Dr. Ghazzal only one day before expiry of his first detention period.

The lawyer, who is a specialist on administrative detention, said that Ghazzal would serve another six months in custody.

He warned that Dr. Ghazzal, 56, suffers from hypertension that causes him repeated fainting, adding that he was taken to Ramle prison hospital on several occasions for that reason.

Makbul said that the lecturer, who was arrested on 7/12/2011, also complains of a problem in his joints and could not stand on his feet for a long time.

The renewal coincided with his family’s preparations to receive him at home on Thursday. All family members were frustrated and infuriated at the IOA step, which did not care less about their feelings.
