Israel sentences journalist to six months in administrative detention

Palestine Information Center – 01/09/2011

AL-KHALIL — Israel has sentenced reporter of the Shehab News Agency (SNA) Amer Abu Arafeh to six months in administrative detention Wednesday evening.

Abu Arafeh received the decision Wednesday morning from the Ofer prison administration on grounds of being a threat to the Israeli state, SNA said quoting members of Abu Arafeh’s family.

His family was shocked that the ruling was made without formal charges being placed and without a hearing in an Israeli court. They confirmed that Abu Arafeh is currently behind bars in the Ofer prison near Ramallah city in the West Bank.

SNA condemned the decision, calling on rights groups and the local and international media to urgently intervene.

SNA considered the decision as part of a campaign Israel has launched against Palestinian and foreign reporters to force them to stop disseminating Israel’s crimes.

  3. The Zionist Jews learned well from the Nazis, or is it the other way around?

    • The Zionists learned well from the Brits which is really saying something. I don’t see why people are always so interested in comparing them to the Nazis.
