Barghouthi celebrates PhD conferral in prison

March 19, 2010 6:09 P.M. (Updated: March 21, 2010 6:39 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma'an – Palestinian detainees at the Hadarim detention center celebrated the conferral of a Doctorate degree on Marwan Barghouthi from Cairo University on Friday, the Prisoners Society reported.

Al-Barghouthi, a member of the Fatah revolutionary council and central figure in the Prisoners Document that proposed a unity deal between Fatah and Hamas in 2007, was sentenced to a life term for involvement in resistance to the Israeli occupation in 2002.

During his incarceration Al-Barghouthi studied political science at the Cairo University, Prisoners Society head Ra’fat Hamdunah said.

The prisoners said the conferral of a PhD on Barghouthi is a victory for Palestinians and a triumph over the occupation, Hamdunah reported.
