From: - Dec 1, 2003

Jenin - The Palestinian prisoner's committee has appealed to international legal institutions to interfere for the release of a Palestinian deaf prisoner held under Zionist administrative detention order for the past three months.

The committee said that the detainee, Khaled Mohammed Mahmoud Arda, 20, an inhabitant of the Arraba village near the West Bank city of Jenin was held without any charge or trial.

The committee quoted citizens in his village as saying that Khaled had no political affiliation and did not take part in any anti-occupation activity.
