Rights lawyer at risk of deportation from Israel

Salah Hammouri, a Palestinian-French human rights lawyer, is at risk of deportation from Israel. HaMoked says that Hammouri’s detention without charge will not be renewed on Friday, and he is at risk of deportation.

Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal against the decision to revoke Hammouri’s residency on the grounds of “breach of allegiance”. Israel accuses Mr Hammouri of belonging to a terrorist group, which he denies.

Amnesty International’s Middle East director, Heba Morayef, said: “Salah Hammouri has already spent nine months in administrative detention without charge or trial this year, in retaliation for his tireless campaigning for an end to Israel’s apartheid against Palestinians”.
