An Hour Before Release, Prisoner Transferred to Administrative Detention

In a PNN report today, the Al-Ahrar Centre for Prisoners' Studies and
Human Rights stated that on Wednesday, May 23rd, prisoner Sameh
Elaiwe, 50, was transferred from Nablus city to Administrative
Detention one hour before his scheduled release date.
Administrative detention is detention without charge or trial that is
authorized by administrative order as oppose to a fair and just
Foad al-Khafsh, head of Al-Ahrar, affirmed that on Tuesday the
Israeli military brought Elaiwe's case before the court, accompanied
by his lawyer Fares Abu al-Hassan. The court ordered Elaiwe's release
for the following day.
However, Israeli intelligence petitioned to overturn the decision
after Elaiwe's lawyer had left the court, and the Court transferred
the prisoner to the administrative detention centre for four months.
Al-Khafsh alleged that Israeli intelligence deliberately intends to
break the spirits of the prisoners, and questioned whether the
military have actually agreed to stop the policy of Administrative
Detention when in fact they appear to be using it more than before
the hunger strikes.
More than 25 cases have been transferred to Administrative Detention
since the Israeli prisons administration and the Supreme Committee
for Prisoners signed their agreement on May 14th.
