Administrative prisoners continue to boycott Israeli courts

Aug. 31, 2018 3:31 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 2, 2018 1:46 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian committee, dedicated for the management of the struggle program for Palestinian administrative prisoners boycotting Israeli military courts, announced a number of decisions regarding developments following meetings with representatives of the Israeli Prison Services' (IPS) intelligence department.

Deputy director of the IPS intelligence department in announced a number of "promises" concerning the determination of a roof for administrative detention per time.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society released a copy of a statement issued by the committee at the Ofer prison confirming that boycotting Israeli military courts would continue until September 10, 2018.

A suspension of the boycott would then take effect until December 10, 2018.

The committee said that the goal of suspending the boycott is to allow enough time to "study" Israeli courts' rulings or decisions against administrative prisoners and examine how committed Israeli courts were to the "promises" they gave to prisoners.
