Addameer Board Chairman Banned from West Bank

RAMALLAH, September 11, 2013 (WAFA) – The Israeli authorities Wednesday informed Abdul Latif Ghaith, a resident of East Jerusalem and chairman of the board of the Ramallah-based Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, that he will not be allowed to enter the West Bank for six more months, according to a statement by Addameer.

This is the fifth consecutive time Ghaith, 71, one of the founders of Addameer, has been banned from entering the West Bank.

The order said the ban was issued because “it was necessary to protect law and order” in the West Bank.

Addameer condemned the ban saying it violates the right of Ghaith for freedom of movement.
