Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Khalida Jarrar bail ordered and then denied - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International
On 21 May a military judge ordered Khalida Jarrar’s release on bail of 20,000 shekels (US$5,160) in cash and a guarantee from a third party for the same amount. He ruled that the military prosecution had provided insufficient evidence that she would be a security risk if released and that the prosecution’s evidence was out of date, some of it dating back to 2011. The prosecution appealed, and on 28 May a different military judge upheld this appeal, thereby reversing the ruling to release her on bail. He based his decision on secret evidence supplied by the prosecution.
