Palestinian MP Marwan Barghouti was moved from Israel’s Raymond prison to an unknown location yesterday, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Affairs Committee said.
In a statement the committee said: “Barghouti was transferred to Raymond prison five days ago and the prison administration prevented him from moving between the prison sections and communicating with other detainees as part of the deliberate restriction on his movement.”
The committee held the prison administration responsible for the “continued arbitrary violations and harassment of Barghouti.”

The Israeli army arrested Fatah member Barghouti in 2002. He was sentenced to five life sentences on charges of organising attacks against Israeli targets during the Second Intifada.
