Khalida Jarrar’s appeal of the expulsion order against her will be presented in an Israeli occupation military court at Ofer on Monday, September 8 at 1:30 pm. In Ramallah, a solidarity and support gathering will take place at the permanent protest tent erected outside the Palestinian Legislative Council demanding the immediate cancellation of the order.
Evidence of the international support for Jarrar, including the over 2500 international signatures, including Members of European Parliament, political parties, social movements and organizations, on the open letter in support of Khalida Jarrar, and the Brazilian statement of solidarity, will be introduced as part of her appeal.
This appeal takes place amid growing popular and official international support for Jarrar. Anne Brasseur, president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, delivered a strong statement on September 7 denouncing the expulsion order against Khalida, noting that such an order against a parliamentary deputy is counter to the “values of democracy and freedom.”
A European parliamentary delegation of the European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) to Palestine, visited Jarrar’s tent and expressed their solidarity and support for the demand to cancel the expulsion order. Spanish parliamentarians introduced a resolution calling for the government to demand the cancellation of the order and an end to the persecution of Palestinian parliamentarians.
