Palestinian liberated prisoner re-arrested in Jerusalem

The Palestinian Information Centre reported on July 8, 2012 Israeli occupation forces re-arrested liberated Jerusalemite prisoner Samer Al-Aisawi from his home in Aisawiye town east of occupied Jerusalem on Saturday night, July 7.

His sister and lawyer Shireen Al-Aisawi said that the Israeli soldiers took away her brother without giving a reason.

Samer, 34, was released in the first batch of the Wafa Al-Ahrar exchange deal late last year between Hamas and Israel after serving ten years of his 30-year sentence.

The Israeli occupation forces have thus re-arrested eight prisoners liberated in that deal despite an article in the deal prohibiting their re-arrest. The Israeli prosecution is demanding that some of those re-arrested should complete their sentences after claiming they violated their release conditions.
