Ministry of prisoners hails Amnesty's call for release of Shalabi



GAZA, (PIC)-- Palestinian ministry for prisoners affairs hailed Amnesty International for condemning Israel's administrative detention of female hunger striker Hana Shalabi and demanding its immediate release.
Amnesty's deputy director of middle east and north Africa program Ann Harrison stated a few days ago that Israel has no right to detain any Palestinian without any guilt and demanded Israel to release Shalabi immediately or charge her with a criminal offense recognizable under international law.
Deputy minister of prisoners' affairs Mohamed Al-Ketri, for his part, urged Amnesty to ensure that Israel would respond to its appeal to release Shalabi.
Ketri also called on the international community to pressure Israel to respect international law and release all administrative detainees without exception.
