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.
