French Foreign Ministry Says It Follows Up Situation Of Jerusalemite Detainee Salah Hammouri

The French Foreign Ministry is mobilizing all its powers to provide Palestinian-French prisoner Salah Hammouri with all possible assistance, spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, Anne Claire Legendre said Wednesday.

During a daily press briefing, Legendre said the French Consulate General in Jerusalem visited Hammouri Wednesday in detention, under consular protection, just as it visited him on March 21 and May 19, noting that the consulate attends all court sessions.

Ten days ago, the Israeli occupation authorities renewed the administrative detention of Hammouri, a French-Palestinian lawyer, for an additional three months, one day before the date of his release.
