Continued Imprisonment Of Palestinian Journalists

EDM number 465 in 1989-90, proposed by George Galloway on 07/02/1990.

That this House notes the further appearance before an Israeli Military Court, 5th February, of leading Jerusalem journalist Sa'man Khouri, former editor of the English language edition of Al Fajr and currently correspondent of Agence France Presse; notes that the charges he faces of membership of the United National Leadership of the Intifada really amount to the accusation of being a leader of his own people in his own country; further notes that his arrest occurred the day after he met with Israeli Government Minister Beilin to discuss mutual recognition and peace; and demands Sa'man Khouri's immediate release.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
