Joint Statement – Justice for Salah Hamouri

For the past 20 years, Salah Hamouri has been persistently harassed by the Israeli authorities, suffering multiple detentions, restrictions on his freedom of movement and separation from his wife and children.

Today, he is held without charge and faces forcible deportation from his homeland.

Amnesty International France, ACAT-France, the FIDH, Human Rights Watch and many other civil society organisations, call upon the French authorities to join them in defending this French citizen.

We must act to terminate his administrative detention.

We must act to prevent his deportation from Jerusalem, his city of birth and residence.
