In an announcement to the press today, Wednesday [April 15, 2015], on the 13th anniversary of the abduction of Parliament Member and leader Marwan Barghouti by the occupation authorities, the faction added that the continuation of his imprisonment that followed his abduction is a severe and disgraceful violation of all the international resolutions and treaties, since he is a Parliament member, elected by the Palestinian people… The faction sent its greetings to prisoner leader Barghouti who is entering his 14th year in the occupation prisons, and all the Parliament members, political leaders, glorious male and female prisoners standing firm in the face of the occupation’s policy of oppression. In addition, the faction emphasized that the dawn of freedom of prisoner leader and Parliament Member Marwan Barghouti and all the Parliament members and Palestinian prisoners will soon break, beyond a shadow of a doubt.”
