Indian American ISM Activist To Sue Israel


Indian American Ism Activist To Sue The State Of Israel

[Beit Sahour, West Bank]

International Solidarity Movement volunteer Radhika Sainath, from Orange County, California is suing the state of Israel on Thursday, November 27 for unlawful imprisonment, negligence and breach of obligations. Leading human rights lawyer Shamai Liebowitz will be representing Ms. Sainath, who was seized by Israeli soldiers last November in the olive groves of the West Bank village Jayyous.

Ms. Sainath will testify against the gross misconduct of Israeli authorities in handling her arrest, during which she was prohibited from calling her lawyer, not served with an arrest warrant and transferred to multiple holding centers over 48 hours, causing her to suffer mental trauma and agony.

Eight other internationals and one Israeli were detained along with Ms. Sainath after observing hundreds of Palestinians pray at the site of olive trees bulldozed for the creation of the "security" Wall. Three of the internationals were deported.

News agencies, Israelis, and Internationals are invited to attend this hearing in support of Radhika Sainath.
