12:00 Jul 3 2011 London, England

LONDON (PIC) 3 July -- British authorities on Friday banned lawyers’ visits to Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, until 11th July, said the law firm handling Salah’s case.

A press release issued by the Irvine Thanvi Natas solicitors (ITN) on Saturday said: On Friday 1st July Mr. Raed Salah was transferred from an Immigration Detention Centre to a formal prison. No good reason for this transfer has been given. The transfer to prison will significantly interfere with the preparation of Mr Salah's appeal against the Deportation Order. The deadline for Mr Salah to Appeal is the 6th July 2011. The prison have informed Mr. Salah's lawyer that his legal team will not be able to visit him until the 11th July, 5 days after the deadline is due to pass ...

Sheikh Salah was first allowed into the country, he delivered a number of lectures, then he was arrested by immigration police, but was taken to a police station were suspected terrorists are usually held, then taken to an immigration detention centre and lastly moved to a formal prison making some commentators say that Sheikh Salah has become the UK’s first Palestinian political prisoner.

July 18, 2011 Sheikh Salah unconditionally released. The full legal case against a government order banning him from the country is likely to be heard in September, 2011.
