President Macron arrested

Salah Hamouri, a fervent defender of Palestinian rights, had already been imprisoned between 2005 and 2011 for participating in the attempted assassination of an Israeli religious and political leader.

This time, he is sentenced to four months of administrative detention, that is to say a conviction without charge, and without a real trial. This measure is highly criticized. It allows Israeli military justice to incarcerate suspects for up to six months, renewable indefinitely and often without charge.

On Twitter, Salah Hamouri’s support committee challenges the French president: ” Mr. Macron your responsibility is directly involved : what are you doing for this persecuted and arbitrarily detained French citizen “.
