Occupation Authorities: 290 administrative detentions in June

The Commission for Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs reported today, Sunday, that the Israeli occupation authorities issued 290 administrative detention decisions last June, including 146 decisions against new detainees, and 144 renewal and extension decisions.

The Commission added that this indicates the continuation of the occupation government in using this policy based on collective punishment for all the Palestinian people.

And she continued: The use of the policy of administrative detention in this way and with this approach “is an implementation of the instructions of the extreme right-wing government, and it is a dedication to the demands of the extremist (Minister of National Security) Itamar Ben Gvir, who previously stated that pursuing the released prisoners is one of his most important tasks,” noting that Nearly 90 percent of the administrative detainees are (former) released prisoners who spent varying periods in the occupation prisons.

Administrative detention is detention without charge or trial, and without allowing the detainee or his lawyer to inspect the evidence materials, in clear and explicit violation of the provisions of international humanitarian law, so that Israel is the only party in the world that practices this policy.

The occupation authorities and prison administrations claim that the administrative detainees have secret files that cannot be disclosed at all, so the detainee does not know the length of his sentence or the charge against him.

The administrative detainee is often subjected to the renewal of the detention period more than once for a period of three months, six months or eight, and sometimes it may reach a full year.
