Israel/OPT: Further information: Palestinian lawyer’s detention extended: Salah Hammouri

French-Palestinian human rights defender Salah Hammouri has been held without charge or trial since 7 March, under a three-month administrative detention order. The order was extended for another three months on 6 June, until 5 September 2022. He is also at real risk of deportation as Israel’s Ministry of Interior has taken action to revoke his residency status in East Jerusalem. Israeli authorities must release Salah Hammouri immediately or promptly charge him with an internationally recognizable offence and ensure that he is allowed to keep his residency status in Jerusalem and continue his human rights work without fear of reprisals.
