Palestinian prisoner, Montaser Saleh Abu Ghalyoun, from Jenin refugee Camp, entered this week his 18th year in Israeli occupation prisons.
Director of the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society in Jenin, Montasser Samour, said that the occupation forces arrested Abu Ghalyoun on February 18, 2004.
The prisoner's family said that their son was subjected to harsh investigation for months running at the Jalameh detention center. The Ofer court sentenced him to five life-imprisonment terms and 50 years.
Shortly after the sentence, the prisoner’s family home was demolished by the occupation authorities.
The prisoner’s brother, Ammar, is held behind Israeli prison bars. Prison authorities continue to refuse to unite them in the same cell. Both brothers have been denied family visits.
