12:00 Aug 25 2011 Hebron

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority on Thursday extended the administrative detention (without charge or trial) of Jamal al-Natshe, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, representing al-Khalil district.

Natshe was arrested on 13 January 2011, only four months after he was released from an eight-year prison term in occupation jails. He was served a six-month administrative detention term which ended over a month ago.

He was kept in prison after end of his detention term and his family was expecting his release especially that his health has deteriorated, but the occupation authority decided to keep him in jail and renewed his administrative detention at a military court on Thursday.

Natshe is jailed in the Askalan prison and has been denied visits since his arrest in January.

The Change and Reform Party, to which Natshe is affiliated, said that his detention is illegal and goes against international laws and conventions.
