Ramallah, 6 Jumadal Awwal 1436/25 February 2015 (MINA) – An Israeli court has extended, for the third consecutive time, the administrative detention of director of the Aqsa satellite channel Aziz Kayed, 50, for another four months.
Kayed’s family told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that his lawyer had told it about the court approval of the prosecutor’s request to extend his detention administratively for four months, Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
According to Ahrar Center of Prisoners’ Studies and Human Rights, during the second extension of Kayed’s detention, the court ordered his release on February 26 before the Israeli prosecutor recently managed to extract another extension verdict against him.
The Center affirmed that many of the employees and journalists of the Aqsa channel had been exposed to arrests in the West Bank at the pretext of the channel’s affiliation with the Hamas Movement. (T/P006/P3)
