Wife of political prisoner detained in Al-Khalil

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Security services in Al-Khalil summoned the wife of one of its prisoners on Sunday amid a continued arrest spree in the West Bank.

Sources close to the prisoner’s family said she was questioned for five hours about a previous ten-year sentence her husband spent in Israeli custody. She was also questioned about taking part in a sit-in protesting political detention in the West Bank as well as a speech given by her son during the event, the sources said.

During the interrogation, she was threatened with arrest and physical assault.

The husband Zeinuddin Shabbana was arrested in January 2011 and sentenced by the military courts to one and a half years in prison alongside four men from the southern West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

The same security agency detained another political prisoner’s wife for four hours during a prison visit just a week ago.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority intelligence agency has declared its refusal to release four men despite rulings for their release by the civil courts in Al-Khalil, sources close to the men have said.

The men have been under investigation since they were first arrested in mid-June. They have been allowed only one visit for the entire period.

On Sunday, PA intelligence nabbed a man from Shyoukh, Al-Khalil governorate, after calling him in for an interview.
