Ramallah, 6 Ramadhan 1436/23 June 2015 (MINA) – Mohammad Mahmoud, a lawyer with the Ad-Dameer Prisoners’ Support and Human Rights Association, said Odai Mofeed Bayyoumi, 23 years of age, was taken prisoner on December 16, 2014.

Mahmoud said the court sentenced Bayyoumi to 13 months, and added four months suspended, “because he is a former political prisoner.”

Bayyoumi, from Kafr ‘Aqeb neighborhood, in Jerusalem, was transferred to different detention centers since his abduction, International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

On Tuesday, May 19, an Israeli court sentenced a Palestinian man to eight months of imprisonment, with an additional six months suspended, for activity on social media.
