UFree Condemns Renewed Solitary Confinement Of Abu Sisi

ACTION ALERT: UFree Network Condemns Renewed Solitary Confinement Of Prisoner Abu Sisi
UFree Network | Campaigns

The European Network to Support Rights of Palestinian Prisoners (UFree) expresses its profound condemnation over the ruling of an Israeli occupation court to renew the solitary confinement of Palestinian-Ukrainian prisoner Dirar Abu Sisi, 42, for further 6 months.

An Israel occupation court in the city of Bi’r Al Sab’, decided on, Thursday the 1st of November 2012, to renew the illegal solitary confinement against Abu sisi. It also ruled that Dirar Abu sisi should be banned from talking to other Palestinian political prisoners in jail.

It is noteworthy that Abu sisi is being placed in solitary confinement cell in Israeli occupation jails since his abduction from Ukrainian territories in Europe on the 18th of February 2011.

UFree clarified that the ruling is a desperate attempt from Israeli occupation authorities to blur the details of the terrorist abduction operation. According to UFree it aims to cover up on those partners who participated in the crime in fear they will be exposed and presented to court.

The network reiterates the fact that Ukrainian government as well as European Union are responsible for the abduction of Abu sisi.

“They are also responsible for transferring him to the occupation state of Israel. Let alone, they failed to provide him a protection whereby European laws, residents shall be protected within European territory. Add to this, there is wired silence from those two parties over the abduction affair and the reports that came up hint that some European intelligence could be complicit” stated UFree Network

An international campaign has just been announced by UFree on the 16th of October 2012 to support political prisoner Abu sisi. It aims to pressure on the occupying state of Israel to release him.

Dirar Abu Sisi, 42, a family man was kidnapped by Israeli intelligence from Ukraine, and then transferred to Israeli jails where he is being tortured. He was snatched by force and under gun threatening while taking the train from Kharkov city to Kiev in Ukraine.

In press statements dispatched by the UFree, it asserted that its petition in support of Dirar is going on and that the ruling of the court will make the network adamant to expose the flagrant and illegal inhuman practices exerted by Israeli authorities.
