Israel: Palestinian Prisoners Freed in Shalit Swap Violated Terms of Pardon – Nir Hasson
(dailyalert.org, Jun.25, 2014)
Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein issued a request Tuesday to re-incarcerate seven Palestinian prisoners from Jerusalem who were released in the 2011 swap for captive IDF soldier Gilad Shalit and taken into custody last week. The request states that each one violated his terms of release and must be returned to jail to serve his original sentence.
“Within the framework of the Shalit deal, hundreds of extremely dangerous prisoners were released whose heavy sentences were shortened in an extraordinary step as a result of Hamas’ blackmailing of the state. As such, any breach of their terms of release – whether big or small – will be treated with utmost severity,” the state prosecutors wrote. (Ha’aretz)
