Israeli court says parents can attend child interrogations

Oct. 10, 2013 2:39 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 12, 2013 11:24 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli judge at a Jerusalem Magistrate's court ruled Wednesday that the parents of young Palestinian detainees can attend police interrogation sessions with their children, the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said.

Mufid al-Hajj, a lawyer with the Palestinian Prisoners Society, told Ma'an that the decision was made during a court session for several Palestinian minors.

Israeli police interrogate Palestinian children repeatedly without the presence of their parents and often force minors to confess to crimes using illegal methods, al-Hajj said.

The decision will be circulated to Israeli police stations in Jerusalem, the lawyer added.

There are some 180 Palestinian children imprisoned in Israeli jails, according to Addameer prisoners group.
