RAMALLAH, March 1, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli Ofer military court approved the administrative detention order against eight Palestinian prisoners, said the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club (PPC) in a statement on Sunday.

PPC said that the court approved the administrative detention against four prisoners for a period of six months.

The prisoners who received a six month imprisonment sentence without charge or trial were identified as Rami Abu Shalaf, Sliman Battat, mohammed Samaneh, and Mohammed Mimi.

Meanwhile, two prisoners from Jenin received a detention period of three and two months. They were identified as Oday Istiti, and Abd al-Rahman Hindyeh, respectively.

The remaining two prisoners, who were also from Jenin and identified as Mohammed Salatneh and Ali Kamil, received a detention period of four months.

B’Tselem – The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, stated that, “Administrative detention is implemented solely on the basis of an administrative order, without either indictment or trial. Under certain circumstances, this type of detention may be lawful. However, due to the substantial injury to due process inherent in this measure, international law stipulates that it may be exercised only in very exceptional cases – and then only as a last possible resort, when there are no other means available to prevent the danger. “

Nevertheless, Israeli authorities routinely employ administrative detention. Over the years, thousands of Palestinians have been held in Israeli custody as administrative detainees for extended periods of time, the center said.
