Saeb Erekat exploits Coronavirus to demand release of all terrorist murderers

Headline: “Erekat: The occupation’s imprisonment of prisoner Muhammad Hassan is an arbitrary violation of international law”

“PLO Executive Committee Secretary [and Fatah Central Committee member] Saeb Erekat said that the fact that the occupation is continuing to imprison Muhammad Majed Hassan, a student at Birzeit University, even though he was diagnosed as being sick with the Coronavirus, is an arbitrary violation of international law.

Erekat added in a press statement yesterday [April 25, 2020]: ‘The international community and UN Secretary-General [António Guterres] has the responsibility to force Israel to release him immediately in order to monitor his health and take the necessary steps.’ He again demanded to release all of the prisoners, and foremost among them the sick, the children, the female prisoners, and the elderly.

Saeb Erekat also serves as Fatah Central Committee member and PLO Chief Negotiator
