PA releases prisoners for Eid Al-Adha

Nov. 14, 2010 11:32 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 15, 2010 2:43 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority has started releasing dozens of prisoners convicted of minor criminal acts to mark the Eid Al-Adha holiday, head of the PA military judiciary Ahmad Al-Mubayyid said Saturday.

Al-Mubayyid said the release was ordered by presidential decree. The official also said the PA did not detain any Palestinian on the grounds of political affiliation, in line with a directive issued by President Mahmoud Abbas.

Journalist Tariq Abu Zeid was among the prisoners to be released, Al-Mubayyid said, adding that Abu Zeid was detained for resisting PA security and his detention was unrelated to his profession as a journalist.
