Israeli court releases politician to house arrest

Sept. 20, 2011 9:48 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2011 1:16 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – An Israeli military court sentenced on Monday a Palestinian politician from Jerusalem to house arrest for 30 days.

The Palestinian Popular Struggle Front said in a statement that Awni Abu Ghosh was sent to house arrest Monday just after he was released from Israeli custody.

Abu Ghosh is secretary of the PPSF’s politburo and member of the central and the national councils of the PLO. He was detained in September at Atara checkpoint.

The statement slammed the decision describing it as part of a racist policy against Palestinian leaders to restrict their movement as the PA struggles to achieve recognition of statehood.
