Local EU statement on conviction of Murad Shteiwi
The EU missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah are concerned by the conviction on 3 December in an Israeli military court of activist Murad Shteiwi from Kafr Qadoum to 9,5 months in prison and by his further suspended sentence in case he again participates in demonstrations. Mr Shteiwi was arrested on 29 April on charges of participating in and organising illegal demonstrations.
The EU missions are concerned that the imprisonment of Mr Shteiwi, who is deeply committed to non-violence, is intended to prevent him and other Palestinians from exercising their legitimate right to protest.
