Military Court Extends Administrative Detention Order Against PLC Member

The Israeli "Ofer" Military Court ruled, Monday, for extending the
Administrative Detention order, for the second time, against elected
Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member, Mohammad Abu Teir, for
additional six months.
Abu Teir, 60, was kidnapped on September 6th, 2011, by the Israeli
Army from his family's home, in Kafr 'Aqab village, north of
Jerusalem, and was placed under Administrative Detention order,
without charges, for six months.
He was supposed to be released on Tuesday, but instead received an
additional 6-month detention order.
The legislator was kidnapped when the Israeli army kidnapped elected
Hamas legislators in the occupied West Bank in 2006. He was released
in 2010 and his Jerusalem ID Card was revoked by the occupation; he
was then kidnapped again, and was imprisoned from six months, before
Israel issued a military order exiling him from Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Information Center reported that Abu Teir was
repeatedly kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel, and spent a total of
30 years in captivity.
Israel's illegal actions against the elected Palestinian officials in
occupied Jerusalem led to the expulsion of Abu Teir along with
Jerusalem legislators Ahmad Attoun, Mohammad Totah, and former
Jerusalem Minister, Khaled Abu Arafa. They were kidnapped at their
protest tend in front of the Red Cross in Jerusalem.
