CFOS joins 200+ groups in calling for Khalida Jarrar’s releaseJuly 13, 2018
Canadian Friends of Sabeel has signed an open letter alongside over 250 other groups from around the world calling for Khalida Jarrar to be released from an Israeli prison. Khalida is an elected representative to the Palestinian legislature and a renowned feminist and advocate for Palestinian self-determination. Khalida has been imprisoned for almost a year already and her sentence has recently been extended by four months. She has been imprisoned through a practice called administrative detention, which allows Israel to imprison anyone without public trial, right to appeal and access to key legal documents. We continue to support Khalida and call for her to be granted due process and the rights she should enjoy as an elected representative of the Palestinian people.
