6 August 2003 - For Immediate Release
Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association
This afternoon, Wednesday 6 August 2003, over 300 Palestinian prisoners and detainees were released from Israeli prisons and military detention camps. However, exact numbers of those released are as of yet not available. At the time of writing, at least 5 sentenced prisoners slated for release remained in prison as a result of petitions filed against their release.
***Correction : In our press release of 5 August 2003, ’Selection of Palestinian Detainees to be Released Solely Reflects Israeli Criteria’, a typing error was made. In the release, it was stated that ’32 detainees will have served their entire detention period in 2005’. This should read ’3 detainees will have served their entire detention period in 2005’. We apologize for the error. ***
