Bulk408RAMALLAH (PNIC):-An Israeli military court Thursday remanded the Palestinian writer Lama Khater in custody for 12 more days, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS said the court, which convened in Ashkelon remanded Khater, aged 42, in custody in order for the security service to continue her interrogation.

PPS said Khater, who was detained on July 24 for her writings, has been undergoing intensive and severe interrogation for the last 17 days and for more than 20 hours a day.

PPS attorney Firas Sabah said Khater has been mistreated by Israeli investigators so as to force her to confess to the alleged charges.

Israeli soldiers kidnapped Khater, a mother of five children, on July 24 because of her anti-occupation writings. Ever since, she has been made to endure exhaustive interrogation that often lasts from daybreak till predawn time. All the way through the investigation, she has been tied to an iron chair.

Khater said she has also been force-fed by the Israeli investigators.
