Dec 28, 2014

1035 administrative detention orders – orders for imprisonment without

Palestinians in 2014, reported the Palestinian Prisoners’ Center for 
Studies. There are currently over 570 Palestinian political prisoners 
held in administrative detention; 114 more administrative detention 
orders were issued in December, including renewals of these orders for 
arbitrary imprisonment against several prisoners who have been part of 
international campaigns:

*Ayman Nasser,* 
the director of Addameer’s legal unit, was subjected to a renewal of the 
administrative detention order against him for 3 months. Nasser arrested 
on 18 September 2014 and arbitrarily imprisoned without charge or trial. 
He was previously arrested on 15 October 2012 and released on 21 October 
2013, imprisoned for his participation in prisoner advocacy activities.
