IOA renews MP Rajoub's administrative detention for the fifth time
IOA renews MP Rajoub's administrative detention for the fifth time
[ 28/11/2012 - 12:19 PM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) renewed on Tuesday afternoon the administrative detention of MP Sheikh Nayef  Rajoub, affiliated to the Change and Reform Bloc and former Minister of Awqaf, for the fifth time in a row.

According to his wife, Sheikh Rajoub informed her by telephone that the Negev prison administration turned him again to administrative detention without setting the period.

Sheikh Rajoub was transferred on Sunday to the Ofer detention center where he was subjected to interrogation by the Israeli intelligence and then returned to the Negev prison without informing him of their decision. He was then informed of the extension decision by Negev prison administration.

Rajoub received assurances from the Israeli prosecutor through his lawyer at the fourth extension that there was no intention to extend his detention further, but the prosecutor reneged on his word.

The occupation authorities arrested Sheikh Rajoub in January 2010 and extended his administrative detention four times in a row for six months and he was expected to be released on Wednesday.

MP Rajoub spent six years and four months in Israeli jails since he was elected to the Legislative Council in early 2006.

MP Rajoub served as minister of endowments in the tenth government since the beginning of 2006.
