West Bank, ALRAY - Israeli Occupation Court extended Wednesday the arrest of the lawyer Shirin Issawi from Jerusalem, and refused to release her claiming some judicial procedures need to be accomplished since she is a dangerous person.
The court postponed the trial of al-Issawi for 6 months, and transferred her to Hasharon prison, until pending the decision in the case.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club explained that the decision of extending the detention of Issawi followed the submitting of an indictment against al- Issawi by the Israeli occupation prosecution , accusing her of providing services to "Prohibited organizations ". It attached a request to extend the detention of her.
The occupation authorities arrested the lawyer Issawi last March on alleged charges of transferring messages between Hamas and Islamic Jihad prisoners and their leaders.
Israeli police arrested Shirin and her brother Medhat al-Issawi ,41, and 4 other lawyers working in a law office in Issawiya town run by lawyer-Issawi, who is known of her activities in monitoring and documenting Israeli occupation violations against the prisoners.
