Ufree condemns new indictment filed against mayor's daughter, Bushra al-Tawil

12:00 Jul 30 2011 Ofer prison, near Ramallah

Description
OSLO (PIC) 30 July -- The European network to support the Palestinian prisoners (Ufree) has condemned Israel's continued detention of the 17-year-old daughter of the mayor of Al-Beira near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The statement comes as the Israeli military prosecutor has placed new charges against her and signs of torture inside the prison have surfaced on her person.

The girl Bushra al-Tawil has been in Israeli custody for 25 days so far. She was abducted in a raid on her family's home. The Israeli Ofer military court ruled Thursday for the release of Tawil as no condemning evidence had been presented against her. But the military prosecutor quickly intervened and introduced an entirely new indictment against her. It also ordered that she be kept in detention and appear before another judge.
