Gaza12Aug7RAMALLAH (PNIC):-Dozens of Palestinian journalists and activists on Saturday morning staged a protest sit-in in Ramallah city to demand the Palestinian Authority (PA) security apparatuses to release detained journalists in the West Bank.

In a speech, lawyer for the journalists Muhanad Karajeh said that the indictments filed against the journalists confirmed they were detained for politically motivated reasons.

Karajeh expressed his shock and dismay at the PA’s attempt to criminalize journalists working for satellite channels licensed to operate in the West Bank, pointing out that some detained journalists were interrogated about issues dating back to 10 years ago.

He said that Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association would coordinate with the Bar Association’s Freedoms Committee and several human rights organizations to work on having the detained journalists released.
