Palestinian Authority: Prisoner of conscience / legal concern: Fathi Subuh
Amnesty International is calling for the release of prisoner of conscience Fathi Subuh, a 43-year-old lecturer in education at Al-Azhar University in Gaza, who was arrested by members of the Palestinian Preventive Security Service on 2 July 1997. He is currently being detained incommunicado and without charge at an unknown location and has reportedly gone on hunger-strike in protest against his detention. He is believed to have been arrested for his criticism of the university management and the Palestinian Authority.
