UFree Network welcomes the release of Dr. Aziz Dowik, speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), after being detained in January at an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank under the illegal Israeli administrative detention law.

Mohammed Hamdan, UFree chairman, said that releasing Dr. Dowik, whom represents Palestinian legitimacy, is a great victory for Palestinian determination over the Israeli prisons.

Hamdan pointed that the continuing detention for members of PLC is a flagrant violation for international laws and conventions, which state on the parliamentary immunity for all elected PLC members.

Hamdan also said that UFree network continues to undertake its role in introducing the case of Palestinian prisoners to the whole world and to call upon implementing EU latest recommendations that in releasing the 20 detained PLC members in Israeli jails.

It is worth mentioning that Dr. Dowik suffers from many diseases and he was arrested several times. In addition to that, in the beginning of 1990s, he was exiled outside Palestine and was detained in 2006 with more than 54 PLC members in from the 10th Palestinian government.

Israeli occupation forces are still targeting PLC members in the West Bank, where it lately arrested Ahmed Mobarak from Ramallah and sat another member, Hassan Yusuf, for interrogation at Al Maskobia jail.
