WE WILL NOT STOP STRESSING THIS !!!
Easy to do...copying, signing and ready for @mail storming or faxes.
JUST GO FOR KHADER ADNAN ! before it is too late !
I am writing to urge you to immediately suspend the administrative detention order of Khader Adnan Mohammad Musa *24 March 1978, Arraba / Jenin, Ramleh prison hospital.
As is the case with so many others there are very serious, well-founded concerns that the charges brought against Khader Adnan were politically motivated.
Israeli administrative detention orders are the subject of review and further appeal by a military court, neither lawyers
nor detainees are permitted to see the “secret information” used as a basis for the detention orders.
This violates international human rights law, which permits some limited use of administrative detention in emergency situations, but requires that the authorities follow basic rules for detention, including a fair hearing at which the detainee can challenge the reasons for his or her detention.
1 These minimum rules of due process have been clearly violated in Khader Adnan's case, leaving him without any legitimate means to defend himself.
1 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Art. 9.
2 Fourth Geneva Convention, Art. 78.
In addition to contradicting international human rights and humanitarian law Khader Adnan's administration detention also violates article 5 (the right to liberty and security) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
It is in this context that I call on you to act and in accordance with international human rights treaties to which Israel is a signatory state, as well as the Israeli Constitution itself, is therefore obligated to undertake the following:
* . Immediately and unconditionally release Khader Adnan;
pending the conclusion of the review--and the dismissal of all charges if the convictions are found to be in violation of the above-mentioned international legal norms (the observance of which the Israel is treaty-bound to observe.)
* . Immediately put an end to its practice of administrative detention and arbitrary arrests;
* Immediately and thorough legal investigation into charges that Khader Adnan was tortured, as well as investigations into other questions of legal irregularities surrounding this case--all carried out in strict accordance with established international norms of justice.
Please be assured that the international community is watching this case very closely.
