Tali Fahima - still no conclusion to her case
"In a June interview with the conservative Jerusalem Post, Tali said, "It is hard for a 28-year-old girl who was brought up on certain values to find out one day that they are all wrong. I never knew the whole truth. I didn't know what I was responsible for ... Now I know that I am responsible for the occupation."
This former Likud voting Israeli is shaking up a few consciences in Israel and interest in her case is growing abroad as well.
From a press release:
On December 5, peace activist Tali Fahima, who has been under administrative detention for the last three months following a month of interrogation at GSS (Shabak), was suddenly taken to the courthouse at Ashdod, where the GSS asked for a further arrest of Tali for interrogation.
Tali Fahima stated in front of the judge that during her previous interrogation at GSS she was subjected to abuse including sexual harassment, painful cuffing, and sleep deprivation. The judge, who did not say anything in relation to Tali’s statement, approved Tali’s arrest at the GSS for 11 days.
Due to this the court hearing at Tel-Aviv concerning the continuation of Tali’s administrative arrest, which was to take place yesterday (December 6), has been cancelled.
Another hearing at the courthouse in Ashdod is to take place on December 16.
