#Human Rights

I am a member of Amnesty International, the non-governmental organization that has been campaigning worldwide in defence of human rights since 1961.

I am writing on the case of Mr. 'Abed al-Rahman al-Ahmar, a human rights activist arrested in Bethlehem last November 22, 2002 and placed in administrative detention for six months as of December 3 on charges of being "a danger to the security of the area". He is currently detained at the 'Ofer Detention Centre.

I believe 'Abed al-Rahman al-Ahmar has never used or promoted the use of violence and that he has been detained solely because of his commitment in favour of human rights. For this reason I respectfully urge you to order his immediate and unconditional release and to make sure he has access to the necessary medical assistance in the meantime.

While thanking you for your attention, I remain.

Sincerely yours,

We, the undersigned, respectfully urge the immediate and unconditional release of 'Abed al-Rahman al-Ahmar, a human rights activist, and we ask that he be given access to the necessary medical assistance in the meantime.
