Israeli Court Extends Jail Term for Abdallah Abu Rahma, Anti-Wall Activist
UPDATE: Today, the Israeli Military Court has accepted the military prosecution's appeal to extend Abdallah Abu Rahmah's sentence. Abu Rahmah was supposed to be released on November 18th 2010, but was kept in detention at the military prosecution’s request despite having finished serving his term. He will now serve an additional 2-3 months in prison, making his serving time a total of sixteen months.
Abu Rahmah, the coordinator of the Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, was arrested last year by soldiers who raided his home in the middle of the night and was subsequently indicted before an Israeli Military Court on unsubstantiated charges that included stone-throwing and arms possession.
