63 more Palestinians jailed without charge or trial under administrative detention

Israeli occupation authorities issued at least 63 administrative detention orders in the latter part of September, reported Palestinian lawyer Mahmoud al-Halabi of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society.

Among those ordered to administrative detention were Sabah Faraoun, a Palestinian seamstress from Jerusalem whose administrative detention has been extended five times since she was seized by occupation forces on 19 June 2016, and Salah Hamouri, the French-Palestinian lawyer and human rights defender who is the subject of a global campaign for his release.

Administrative detention orders, which imprison Palestinians without charge or trial on the basis of secret evidence, are issued for one- to six-month periods and are indefinitely renewable. Palestinians have spent years at a time jailed without charge or trial under administrative detention. There are currently approximately 450 Palestinians held under administrative detention out of a total of 6,200 Palestinian political prisoners.
