PSP Co-Founder to Spend 6 Months in Prison

27 April 2008

Wednesday, April 23, 2008, an Israeli Military Court granted the petition by the Israeli military to hold Palestine Solidarity Project Co-Founder, Mousa Abu Maria, in Administrative Detention for 6 months. Mousa has not been and will not be charged with anything; Administrative Detention by definition precludes any recourse through the court system. Mousa is keeping his spirits up. He was happy to see the hundreds of faxes and emails written on his behalf. Though there is one more chance for an appeal, the fact that these decisions are being made by the Israeli military on petitions brought by the Israeli military does not lend itself much hope that a Palestinian justice activist will receive much justice himself.

We are still collecting for his legal fund, please donate via our website at:
