FPJ slams PA intelligence for kidnaping journalist from hospital

[ PIC 24/04/2013 – 10:50 AM ]

images_News_2013_04_24_press-violations_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– The forum of Palestinian journalists (FPJ) strongly denounced the Palestinian authority intelligence agency for kidnapping journalist Tareq Khamis from a hospital in Ramallah city.

In a press release on Tuesday, the forum said that this incident proved further the size of the violations committed by the PA security apparatuses against freedom of the press.

The forum expressed its solidarity with the journalist who said he would not respond to any summons for interrogation from any PA security apparatus.

Khamis stressed that there is a coordinated war launched by the PA and Israel against the Palestinian journalists, noting that 14 of them are locked up in Israeli jails.

He also expressed his dismay at the silence of the Palestinian factions and human rights groups on such violations against the journalists in the West Bank.

PA intelligence personnel had kidnapped Khamis on Saturday morning from the medical care hospital in Ramallah city without any arrest warrant.

The intelligence interrogators questioned him about his journalistic activities and asked him to attend another session of interrogation later before releasing him at five o’clock in the afternoon.

Khamis, who works for Zamn Press agency, had been kidnapped last April as a result of his protest against the arrest of a female journalist named Esmat Abdul-Khalek because of a posting on her facebook page.
