The Russell Tribunal on Palestine condemns Israel's illegal
detention and deportation of one of its coordinator, Frank Barat.
On Wednesday 24th of April at 1.20am, Frank Barat, following a 4
hours interrogation by the Shabak (Israel's internal secret service)
and a 23 hours detention at Givon prison in Ben Gurion airport, was
deported back to Belgium.
Mr Barat was visiting Israel/Palestine on a personal capacity but
also had to attend an important event on Palestinian political
prisoners in Ramallah at the occasion of the 11th anniversary of the
arrest of Palestinian Political leader Marwan Barghouti.
The Tribunal is convinced that Frank's deportation was solely due to
his involvement in the Russell Tribunal on Palestine and in his work
in solidarity with the Palestinian People. This type of behavior by
the State of Israel, which is becoming more and more common, is not
the one of a so called democratic State and reinforce the Tribunal's
view that Israel has truly become an apartheid State. Unless Israel,
as stipulated in the findings of the Tribunal, respect International
Law and put an end to this system, this country will become more
and more ostracized every day.
The Tribunal therefore reaffirms the importance of worldwide
solidarity with the Palestinian People until they achieve their
right to self determination. Justice, Equality and Freedom for the
palestinians should be the basis and prime condition for any just
peace in the region.
