Israeli Occupation Forces Arrests Addameer's Legal Unit Coordinator Ayman Nasser

09 September 2018

Ayman Nasser, (48 years old) the coordinator of Addameer's legal unit, was arrested by Israeli Occupation Forces from his home in the West Bank on 9 September 2018. He is currently being held without charge or trial in Ofer prison.

His wife informed Addameer that this morning, Sunday 9 September 2018, soldiers broke into the house at 2:00 am. They woke up Aymen’s children and kept the entire family in the living room while they were searching the house. There were around ten soldiers inside the house, and tens of soldiers outside the house.

Ayman’s wife added, “they took all of our IDs and phones, and then they returned all of them but Ayman’s. They also took Aymen and our two boys Ameen (20 years old) and Naji (18 years old) outside for interrogation. After half am hour, they allowed Ayman to say goodbye to us and to take his medication and they all left with him.”

Addameer condemns the Israeli occupation forces for arresting its legal coordinator multiple times over the past few years. This re-arrest of Ayman is an clear example of the occupation’s policy of systematically targeting human rights defenders. His arrest is a violation of international human rights laws and the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders. Addameer calls on the international community to seriously work towards holding the Israeli occupation accountable for its crimes and to release all Palestinian detainees.

It is worth mentioning that Ayman Nasser was arrested three times before today. The last one was in 2014, when he spent over a year under administrative detention. Ayman has a Masters in Social Educational Psychology from al-Quds University. He is also the Chairperson, and one of the founders of the Handala Center in Saffa, which was established 1999. The Handala Center is an educational, artistic and sports center that is based on the principle of voluntary work and serves all the residents of Saffa.

Israel Places Addameer Legal Coordinator under Administrative Detention.

September 25, 2018

A senior staff member of Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer has been placed under administrative detention by Israeli military court of Ofer, on Monday.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners and Former Prisoners Affairs’ Committee, Ayman Nasser, 48, from the Saffa village in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, was placed under administrative detention for six months.

The committee pointed out that Israeli forces detained Nasser on September 9, 2018, and underwent several days of intense interrogation until he was sentenced to administrative detention.

Nasser, a husband, and father of four children is the legal unit coordinator at Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association and had previously been sentenced to one year of administrative detention.

Administrative detention is imprisonment without trial or charge, it has no time limit and the evidence on which it is based is not disclosed.

Israel utilizes this measure extensively and routinely and has used it to hold hundreds of Palestinians for lengthy periods of time.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,781 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons, 456 of whom are administrative detainees.
