Detainee Maher Odah, 48, from Ein Yabroud village near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, was forced into exile on Wednesday evening after the Israeli government decided to deport him to Malaysia. Odah was kidnapped by the Israeli army on March 14, 2010, after being perused by the for eight years.
He was placed under interrogation and was subjected to extreme torture for 45 days without being allowed to see a lawyer, before he was placed under administrative detention without charges or trial.
The Ahrar Center for Detainees Studies and Human Rights reported that Israeli prison officials and interrogators repeatedly told Odah that he will never be released unless he is deported.
His wife told the Ahrar Center on Wednesday that she received a phone call from an Israeli prison official who informed her that her husband was released, and was deported to Malaysia.
The Center denounced the ongoing Israeli violations against the detainees, and the illegal deportation orders as they violate the international law and the Fourth Geneva Conventions.
It demanded the International Community to act against the Israeli violations against the detainees and the ongoing violations and attacks against the Palestinian people.
