OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli authorities banned the Jerusalemite lawyer Shirin Issawi, the sister of prisoner Samer Issawi, from practicing her work under “security reasons.”

The decision was issued by the Israeli prosecutor, where she was banned over the 3 previous years from practicing her work as a lawyer since her arrest in 2010, she clarified.

Shirin stated in a press release that she was due to resume her work yesterday but she was surprised by an Israeli decision that renews the ban for two more years.

Shirin was held for a whole year in Israeli jails. Her brother Samer Issawi went on hunger strike for more than 8 months protesting his re-arrest after being liberated in Wafa al-Ahrar deal.
