January 20, 2014

The administration of “Hasharon” prison prevented on Monday the mother and brother of 17-year old prisoner Ali Sabri Abu Diab from visiting him. Mohammad Abu Diab, the prisoner’s brother, said that he went to visit his brother along with his mother in Hasharon prison. The female soldier found his mother’s cell phone in her pocket and the mother tried to tell her that she was not intending to sneak in the phone to her son but she refused to listen and prevented them from visiting Ali. Abu Diab added: “after my mother came out, the soldier tried to strip search me before the visit but I refused and verbal clashes occurred between us and I was denied to visit my brother.” Abu Diab was arrested from in front of his house in the neighbourhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan on 16/11/2012 during the clashes that broke out in the town to protest against the war on Gaza. After spending more than a month in the interrogation cells, he was presented to court several times and was sentenced to 20 months of actual imprisonment last august as he was charged with throwing Molotov cocktails at an Israeli force. The family of Abu Diab was surprised few days ago when their son’s file was reopened and he was scheduled for another hearing session on Tuesday; note that he was arrested and was then released with a financial bail.
