Female detainee marks 2 years in administrative detention

Aug. 2, 2011 4:47 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 5, 2011 11:07 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Center for Detainees reported Tuesday that female detainee Hana Al-Shalabi from Jenin is now the longest serving female prisoner held in Israeli administrative detention.

She was detained in 2009 and is currently in Hasharon prison.

The Israeli authorities have kept on postponing her trial without providing any justification and the Israeli Shabak refuse to tell her why she is being detained, the ministry said.

She is banned from seeing her family.

Administrative detention entails being detained without a trial or any charge.

Israel has held thousands of Palestinians in administrative detention in the past and the practice has been widely condemned by human rights groups.
