    RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The Israeli court of Ofer, near Ramallah, ordered the administrative detention of Palestinian MP Ahmed Al-Haj for six months, without any charge.

    Ahmed Al-Beitawi, a researcher with the international Tadamun foundation, said that the same court also ordered the administrative custody of lecturer Mustafa Al-Shinawi for four months. Both would appear in court next Sunday where the verdicts would be pronounced.

    He described the decisions as “illegal” since administrative custody is arbitrary incarceration with no legal justification and with no indictment leveled against the detainee.
