[ PIC 17/05/2013 – 08:28 PM ]

images_News_2013_05_17_journalist-demo01_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms (MADA) said the Palestinian intelligence service summoned on Wednesday journalist Haroun Abu Ora for interrogation, in its headquarters in Ramallah.

Abu Ora told MADA that he had received a summons from the intelligence service on Wednesday to attend at 10 am its headquarters, where he had been interrogated for about 2 hours and a half.

“The interrogation was mostly related to my personal life and connections and was not related to my journalistic work”, the freelance journalist added.

A few days ago, the Preventive Security Service arrested in al-Khalil journalist Omar Abu Arqoub, the Israeli affairs editor at Hona Al Quds network, and held him for two days.

His brother Ayman Abu Arqoub told MADA center that elements of the preventive security apparatus arrested Omar after summoning him for interrogation at its headquarters in al-Khalil.

Journalist Omar Abu Arqoub stated that the forces confiscated his Laptop and his flash memory, and released him two days after his arrest, after handing over to him another summons for another interrogation next Saturday 18th May 2013.

MADA Center expressed grave concern regarding PA’s procedures against the journalists, and demanded it to stop its violations of freedom of opinion and expression and to respect the Palestinian Basic Law, which explicitly guarantees the right of expression in Article 19.
