30 June 2004 to 4 July 2004

Wednesday, 30 June

[Jerusalem] Wednesday morning the Israeli Supreme Court gave its decision concerning the path of the Apartheid Wall in the northwest Jerusalem area. Please see following report for more details.

[Jerusalem] At 1:30 this afternoon, two of the Palestinian peace activists, Mohammed Khalil Mansour and Khaled Fuad Salameh, arrested in A-Ram last Saturday presented their defense to Judge Shelev-Gerter at the Jerusalem Peace Court. Advs Lea Tsemel and Yael Berda called on the court to recognize the racial discrimination practiced by the Israeli police, as Israeli activists arrested at the same demonstration were released the same evening whereas the Palestinians were beaten, jailed and are facing charges. A judgment is to be announced Friday at 10 AM at the Jerusalem Peace Court.

Nidal Musa Ka’abneh, age 17, and Mohammed Ahmed Amr, age 15, also arrested in last Saturday’s A-Ram demonstration, had a closed hearing today presided over by Judge Shelev-Gerter. Video presented by the defense clearly shows the violent way in which these two youths were apprehended and refutes the claim that they attacked a police officer. The judgment as to their case is also set for Friday at 10 AM.
