In the month of August, 84 Palestinians have so far been ordered to imprisonment without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation under administrative detention orders, reported the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society on Sunday, 20 August.

Administrative detention orders are issued for two to six months at a time and are indefinitely renewable; Palestinians can spend years at a time jailed under these orders with no charges and no trial against them, under the pretext of an unreviewable and unchallengable “secret file.”

Among those issued orders for administrative detention include Badran Jaber, 69, veteran Palestinian leftist leader seized on 9 August, and Mohammed Abu Teir, 65, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council who has previously served 34 years in Israeli occupation prisons. Jaber was issued an order for four months of imprisonment and Abu Teir for six months.

Former long-term hunger striker Ayman al-Tabeesh was ordered to another six months in administrative detention, as was leftist leader, journalist and fellow former hunger striker Nidal Abu Aker. Al-Tabeesh has been repeatedly imprisoned without charge or trial under administrative detention and this is the third renewal of his imprisonment in his latest arrest. Illustrating the use of administrative detention to indefinitely imprison Palestinians, many of the orders issued were extensions for the second and third time, including against those who had previously spent years in administrative detention.

Of the orders issued in August to date, 47 began new periods of administrative detention, while 38 of the orders were extensions.
