Violations Report 2009-2010

This report examines the phenomenon of political arrests by the Palestinian Authority’s security forces in the West Bank. It is part of Addameer’s ongoing efforts to end the Palestinian Authority’s policy of politically driven arbitrary detention, which threatens political stability, causes social tension and destroys the Palestinian social fabric. Addameer’s work in this regard seeks to further the Palestinian people’s aspiration for freedom from occupation and colonization and for building a free and democratic Palestinian society based on justice, equality, rule of law and respect for human rights within the larger framework of the right to self-determination.
