Occupation arrests 3 Palestinians who complained of trespassing settlers

[ PIC 03/05/2013 – 11:35 AM ]

images_News_2013_05_03_settlers04_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– B’Tselem organization reported that the Israeli army arrested three Palestinian citizens after they complained of settlers’ attacks.

The human rights organization stated that a military court judge at Ofer Camp ordered the unconditional release from detention of the three Palestinian residents of al-Khalil, Shaker Zaro (Tamimi) and his two sons Shehab and Shukri, who had been arrested by soldiers summoned to deal with trespassing settlers.

B’Tselem said that the three Palestinians in question on Wednesday saw on their privately-owned land settlers from Giv’at Gal, and called the police to report the trespassing that was documented in video by B’Tselem’s cameraman.

“When soldiers arrived on the scene, the Palestinians told them that this was their own land and that they wanted the trespassers removed. The soldiers ignored these explanations. Rather than sending the settlers away, the soldiers arrested the Palestinians and took them to the Kiryat Arba Police Station. There, the police did not release the detainees.”

The police demanded cash bail and a pledge that the Zaros will not go out to their land for 15 days. However, the detainees insisted that they were innocent and refused to pay any money or sign any pledge. Consequently, the police kept them in custody overnight, B’Tselem added.

It said: “On Thursday, 25 April, a hearing was held in the Ofer military court, with the prosecution seeking to extend the Palestinians’ remand. In response, defense counsel, Adv. Nery Ramati of the Gaby Lasky law firm, submitted video footage of the arrest and Shaker Tamimi’s land deeds.”

In her decision, Justice Sharon Rivlin stated that “In the absence of any evidence that the suspects were not allowed to be at the site of their arrest, or that they had indeed perpetrated a prohibited act there, there are no grounds for arresting the suspects.”
