The Faculty of Law organized a lecture on Tuesday, 18/10/2016 about administrative detention practices used by Israel to detain Palestinians indefinitely without charging them or allowing them to stand trial. The faculty hosted Jawad Boulos, a prisoner’s rights lawyer and the director of the Legal Department of the Palestinian Prisoners' Club Society.
Lecturers Dr. Na’im Salama and Dr. Ghassan Khaled opened the session by welcoming guests and audience members and introducing the topic and its relevance to students and their development of legal knowledge and skills.
Mr. Bolos introduced the subject by placing it in a historical context, invoking cases in which international human rights and international humanitarian law permitted limited use of administrative detention. He drew comparison between said cases and Israeli practices that have routinely and significantly exceeded the existing restrictions placed by the international law. Mr Bolos also spoke about the experiences of Palestinian prisoners to resist this type of detention, and stressed the urgent need to adopt a national strategy that will fight against it.
Lecture concluded with a discussion among speakers and student audience members.
