PCHR, May 24, 2010



Ref: 40/2010

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) is gravely concerned regarding ongoing detention and harassment directed against members of the Fatah movement in the Gaza Strip and the Hamas movement in the West Bank; PCHR believe that these measures are conducted on political grounds. PCHR reiterates its call to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) and security services in Ramallah and Gaza to stop such arrests, immediately release all political detainees, and end the practice of political detention.

In the West Bank, security services have continued to arrest and issue summons against many Hamas members; the most prominent of whom was professor, Mohammed Ghazal, 53, one of the movement's leaders in the northern West Bank city of Nablus. He was detained for several hours last week before being released. In his testimony to PCHR, Dr. Ghazal stated that on 19 May 2010, a force of the Preventive Security Service (PSS) stormed his apartment, which is located in a building in the center of Nablus. They searched the apartment for two hours and confiscated some papers, CDs and his laptop, and he was then taken to Jneid Prison in the city. According to Dr. Ghazal, he had stayed there from 17:00 to 23:00, in the meanwhile was questioned on organizational matters. He was released after signing a statement that included his CV.

Over the past two weeks, the Internal Security Service in the Gaza Strip has issued summons against dozens of members of the Fatah movement, some of whom are leaders and activists in the movement, including Dr. Fayez Abu 'Eita, 42, the spokesperson of the Fatah movement. Dr. Abu 'Eita was placed under house arrest. Upon being summoned, each member was obligated to go to the Internal Security Service's office in his area so as to be questioned regarding his activities in the movement. Some of them were released on the same day, while others were kept under detention for two days.

PCHR reiterates its condemnation of political arrests, which are often accompanied by torture or other forms of cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment, and:

1. Confirms that "personal freedom is a guaranteed right" under the Palestinian basic law, which states that it is prohibited to "apprehend, search, imprison, or restrict the freedom, or prevent the movement of any person unless by a judicial order," in addition, "a person who is apprehended or detained must be informed of the reasons for his apprehension or detention.";

2. Reminds of the Palestinian Supreme Court of Justice ruling on 20 February 1999, which emphasized the illegality of political detention and that all executive bodies should respect the Court ruling and stop practicing political arrests;

3. Emphasizes that detention is governed by the Palestinian law and lies within the competence of judicial warranty officers represented in the civil police, whose work lies under direct orders and supervision of the Attorney-General; and

4. Calls for immediate release of all political prisoners detained by the Palestinian security services in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
