Israel to re-sentence prisoners released in Shalit deal

June 20, 2014 2:51 P.M. (Updated: June 21, 2014 5:45 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's public prosecution on Friday transferred seven Palestinian prisoners released in a 2011 swap deal to Haifa's central court for re-sentencing, a prisoners group said.

A lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners Society told Ma'an that a special committee in Haifa's central court on Friday cancelled the temporary parole order for seven prisoners released in the 2011 prisoners swap deal for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Alaa al-Din al-Bazyan, Rajab al-Tahhan, Ismail Hijazi, Nasser Abd Rabbu, Adnan Maragha, Ibrahim Mashaal and Jamal Abu Saleh will appear before the court on Friday.

The court will review violations of the prisoners' parole with the aim of reinstating their previous prison sentences, the lawyer added.

The seven ex-prisoners were detained on Wednesday after Israeli forces raided their homes in Jerusalem.

The 2011 deal traded Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldiers captured by Hamas militants on the Gaza border in 2006, for 1,027 Palestinians and Palestinian-Israelis being held in Israeli jails.

The detention and retrial of the prisoners, however, is a breach of the deal possibly related to the ongoing Israeli search operation across the West Bank, and could potentially have wide-reaching consequences for other freed prisoners.
