Addameer: Israel extends detention of rights researcher

Nov. 14, 2012 10:26 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2012 10:26 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court extended the detention of human rights advocate Ayman Nasser for a further nine days on Wednesday, Addameer said.

Nasser, 42, was detained on Oct. 15 from his home in the village of Saffa, west of Ramallah. He has been working as a researcher for prisoners rights group Addameer since 2008, and is also a part-time lecturer in social work at Al-Quds University.

The right group said it was "extremely concerned" about Nasser, noting that he is being denied medication for his health condition, is being held in isolation, and his interrogation sessions are lasting over 20 hours.
