Urgent Action Needed! Administrative Detention Orders Extended for Three Birzeit Students
Sari Taha (24), Diaa Awad (26) and Mohammed Abu Libdeh (25), all students at Birzeit University, were arrested within days of each other in January 2004. All of them were taken during a night raid on their homes by Israeli soldiers in Ramallah and put into administrative detention for 3 months. Recently their detention orders were extended for a further 3 months with no reason given. They have not been charged with any offense and no information or evidence relating to their cases has been released. Their lawyers have no knowledge of why their detention orders have been extended or why they were arrested in the first place.

Please write to Mr Shaol Mofaz, Israeli Minister of Defense, demanding the immediate release of Sari Taha, Diaa Awad and Mohammed Abu Libdeh, on the basis of their right to education and the illegality of their detention without charge or trial.

Khader Raddad (Age 30), Civil Engineering student
Khader is a Civil Engineering student at Birzeit University. He enrolled at Birzeit University in 1993 and as such has been trying to finish his 5 year degree for over 11 years. His studies have been interrupted by repeated arrests and detention. Khader has been in administrative detention since November 2002.

Eyad Mousa Amra (Age 30), Literature student
Eyad is a Literature student at Birzeit University. He enrolled at Birzeit University in 1996 and has been in administrative detention since March 2002.

Na’il Mousa Said Ahmad (Age 25), Engineering student
Na’il is an Engineering student at Birzeit University. He enrolled at Birzeit University in 1998 and has been in administrative detention since February 2002.

None of these students has been charged with any offense and no information or evidence relating to their cases has been released. As such, even their lawyers have no knowledge of why Na’il, Khader and Eyad have been kept in prison for between 1 and a half to two years. Please write to Mr Shaol Mofaz, Israeli Minister of Defense, demanding their immediate release on the basis of their right to education and the illegality of their detention without charge or trial.
