Qbdul-Qaher Srour, deputy head of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) imprisoned by Israel along with several legislators including PLC head Dr. Aziz Dweik, has been under interrogation by Israel in Al Maskobiyya Interrogation facility since May 29 and was not allowed to see his lawyer.

His wife voiced an appeal for his release and urged human rights groups to intervene especially since he is still under interrogation which started after he was kidnapped by the army on May 29.

In an interview with the Ahrar Center for Detainees’ Studies, the detained legislator’s wife said that her husband is suffering from a bad health condition as he was supposed to conduct a heart surgery which was planned to be conducted in early June.

Srour was kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel six times in addition to his current imprisonment.

Fuad Al Khuffash, head of the Ahrar Center, said that Israel’s act of barring the lawyer from seeing Srour is illegal and violates the international law.

He added that the Israeli High Court of Justice rejected an appeal by Srour’s lawyer to be allowed to see him and claimed that Srour is still under interrogation.  

Al Khuffash also stated that Srour’s health condition is very serious as he needs to conduct a heart surgery. He held the Israeli Authorities responsible for any complications.
