Two detained PLC members now in Israeli prison hospitals

July 31, 2008 5:28 P.M. (Updated: July 31, 2008 5:28 P.M.)
Hebron - Ma'an - Member of the Hamas bloc for the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Basem Az-Z'areer denounced on Thursday the Israeli interrogators' attack on imprisoned PLC members en route to Ofer, the Israeli military court.

Az-Z'areer charged that integrators intentionally drove well beyond the speed limit, and would suddenly stop, causing injuries among several of the PLC members.

After the drive, said Az-Z'areer, PLC members Mohammad Abu Tir and Nayef Ar- Rujub were moved to Ramleh prison hospital. Secretary General of the PLC Dr Mahmoud Ar-Ramahi, Mohamad At-Tal, Khaleel Ar-Rab'i and A'zam Salhab were injured.

Az-Za'reer described what happened as "against all laws and morals of countries and governments," he wondered about the role of the human rights organizations in preventing these sorts of injustices.

Az-Za'areer demanded Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas make more efforts to release the imprisoned PLC members and ministers. He added that at the top of the list of those who should be released is Dr Aziz Duwiek, head of the Palestinian Legislative Council.

Israeli army had arrested more than forty PLC members and ministers of Hamas movement after the capture of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit two years ago.
