Israel decides to deport Palestinian prisoner after extending detention

12:00 Jul 3 2011 Nafha prison, outside Mitzpe Ramon

RAMALLAH (PIC) 3 July -- Israel has decided to deport Palestinian prisoner Hammad Muslim Abu Amra to Lebanon thirty months after his prison sentence had ended. The International Committee of the Red Cross has informed Abu Amra, 48, of Israel’s decision to deport him to live with his family in the Nahar al-Barid refugee camp in Lebanon, the Popular Movement for the Support of Prisoners and Palestinian Rights reported. Abu Amra was being held prisoner at the Nafha prison after his six-year prison sentence came to an end in February 2009, as Israel considered him a non-Palestinian Arab prisoner and dealt with him using the “Unlawful Combatant law”, the PMSPPR said. The law allows for holding the prisoner indefinitely without an indictment.
