Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Bring Khalida Jarrar’s Trial Promptly (UA 81/15)

Palestinian parliamentarian Khalida Jarrar has pleaded guilty to two of 12 charges against her and accepted a 15-month prison sentence, because she does not believe she will receive a fair trial before an Israeli military court. 
1) Please write immediately in Hebrew, English or your own language:
  • Expressing concern that Khalida Jarrar’s guilty plea was made because of the flagrantly unfair military proceedings in her case, which admitted coerced testimony which were later recanted;
  • Expressing concern that the detention of Khalida Jarrar, the proceedings against her and her sentence appear to be punitive measures used to supress her right to free and peaceful expression.
