France/Israel/Palestine: Campaign to free Salah Hamouri continues to grow in France

October 10, 2017

The campaign for the release of imprisoned French-Palestinian lawyer and human rights defender Salah Hamouri has continued to expand. Elsa Lefort, Hamouri’s wife and the spokesperson for his support committee, has continued to speak at events and actions across the country as well as meeting with French diplomatic officials to push for meaningful French action to demand Hamouri’s release. He is currently held without charge or trial under a six-month administrative detention order after he was seized from his home near Jerusalem by Israeli occupation forces, who invaded his house in an armed pre-dawn raid.

Hamouri is a field researcher for Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association and a newly graduated lawyer who passed the Palestinian bar examination only three days before he was seized by Israeli occupation forces on 23 August. He is a Jerusalemite Palestinian and former political prisoner who was jailed for nearly seven years before being released in the Wafa al-Ahrar prisoner exchange and has been an international spokesperson on the issue of Palestinian prisoners.

Elsa Lefort, Jean-Claude Lefort and Maitre Berenger Tourne, Hamouri’s French lawyer, met on 9 October with a diplomatic advisor to French president Emmanuel Macron, pushing for meaningful action to free Hamouri from administrative detention, where he is held on secret evidence without charge or trial on an indefinitely renewable term.

“As with every French citizen, Salam Hamouri must be able to benefit from the protection and support that the French State grants to its citizens and residents. Beyond consular protection, the French Republic must also take a position in this case against the arbitrary detention of Salah Hamouri and the harassment to which he and his family are subjected,” said the Support Committee.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Argentine Judge Summons Ex-President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in Ongoing Probe of Cover-up of Iran’s Responsibility for 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish Center Bombing

October 9, 2017

The Argentine federal judge investigating the allegation that ex-President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s administration conspired with Iran to hide Tehran’s culpability for the deadly 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires announced on Monday that Kirchner has been subpoenaed to appear before him on October 26.

In the latest sensational development in a case that has proceeded for over twenty years without a single conviction, Judge Claudio Bonadio banned Kirchner and fourteen other defendants from leaving the country until they have provided their testimonies.

Bonadio’s case is based on the original complaint that was to have been submitted by late special prosecutor Alberto Nisman in January 2015, which laid out the charge of complicity with Iran against Kirchner, her foreign minister Hector Timerman and several other officials. Nisman was found dead in his Buenos Aires apartment the night before he was due to present his complaint to Argentina’s Congress; the initial spurious claim that Nisman committed suicide was finally disproven last week, when an official report from from Argentina’s Gendarmeria Nacional concluded that the federal prosecutor had been beaten, drugged, and then shot execution-style.

Argentina/Iran/Israel: Le rôle du régime iranien dans le meurtre d’un procureur argentin

le 3 octobre, 2017

Le rôle du régime iranien dans le meurtre d’un procureur argentin

Dans un article publié dans le Real Clear World, Toby Dershowitz, vice-président de la Fondation pour la défense des démocraties, a rapporté sur l’enquête concernant l’assassinat en 2015 du procureur Alberto Nisman. Celui-ci a eu lieu la veille du jour où il devait présenter des preuves impliquant le régime iranien dans la plus grande attaque terroriste en Argentine et démontrait que la présidente de l’époque, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, essayait de couvrir cette implication.

M. Dershowitz a souligné que le rapport de police de 400 pages « a découvert ce que la plupart des gens auraient trouvé instinctivement. » M. Nisman ne s’est pas suicidé, mais il a été assassiné. En réalité, il a été drogué, puis passé à tabac, ce qui ne conduit pas à l’hypothèse du suicide. Pourtant, Mme Kirchner a décrit sa mort en tant que suicide, le résultat d’une dispute avec sa partenaire, et même un meurtre pour la piéger.

L’affaire est cependant loin d’être résolue. Nous ne savons toujours pas qui l’a tué, qui l’a commandité et pour quelles raisons.

M. Dershowitz a écrit : « De nombreux observateurs pensent qu’il n’était pas la cible. La cible était les preuves qu’il devait exposer concernant le rôle de l’Iran dans le terrorisme dans l’hémisphère occidental, et concernant les tentatives présumées de Mme Kirchner pour couvrir le rôle de l’Iran dans les attentats du 18 juillet 1994 contre l’AMIA, le centre de la communauté israélite à Buenos Aires. »

Cet attentat a fait 85 morts et des centaines de blessés.

France/Israel/Palestine: Administrative detention ‘worst of all possible worlds’

October 3, 2017

At first glance, a legislator, a circus performer and an NGO worker might not appear to have much in common. But all three Palestinians are former or current political prisoners who have been subjected to an obscure legal procedure called administrative detention, which allows Israel to imprison people without charge or trial for an indefinite amount of time.

Israeli authorities have been using this procedure for more than half a century, basing it on secret evidence. The Palestinian Prisoners Society, a detainee support group, noted a sharp rise in administrative detentions in August, with more Palestinians held without trial than during any other month this year. The rise, to 84 detentions, came amid increased tensions in the occupied West Bank after the stabbing of three Israeli settlers by a Palestinian on July 21.

As of September, there were 449 administrative detainees being held in prisons inside Israel, almost all of them Palestinian, according to data provided to rights group Hamoked by the Israel Prison Service.

“Administrative detention is the worst of all possible worlds because all the evidence is secret,” Sari Bashi, the Israel/Palestine advocacy director at Human Rights Watch, told Al Jazeera. “We would expect administrative detention to be the rarest as opposed to being standard practice. There are about 500 people in administrative detention. That’s not an exceptional number.”

Human rights activist Salah Hamouri, a Palestinian-French dual citizen, was among those arrested in August in a predawn raid at his home in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Kufr Aqab. No reason was given for the arrest, his family said.

Hamouri, 32, was previously released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal between Hamas and Israel, after spending seven years in prison. The deal was also backed by France. Israel alleged that Hamouri was part of a plot hatched by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) to assassinate Ovadia Yosef, the founder of the ultraorthodox Shas party, who routinely incited against Palestinians.

Hamouri was taken to al-Muskubyeh (the so-called Russian Compound) interrogation centre in Jerusalem, where he was held for several days without access to a lawyer. He was later told he was in violation of his parole and that he would have to serve out the remainder of his sentence from 2005, which was three months.
