Palestinian Al-Haq human rights activist barred from attending UN meeting | Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

Press TV Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:12PM GMTIsrael’s security apparatus, Shin Bet, has prevented head of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, al-Haq, from leaving Israel to attend a UN meeting.Director-General of al-Haq organization Shawan Jabarin was set to attend a UN Human Rights Council conference in Geneva scheduled to take place from 20 to 24 February, but he was denied permission to leave Israel.It is not the first time that Tel Aviv bars Jabarin from attending meetings abroad. He has been prevented from traveling outside of West Bank since 2006.Shin Bet claim that Jabarin is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and that “his travel may endanger regional security” but refuse to disclose evidence on the grounds that it is classified.Jabarin, however, denies membership in PFLP. Last year, Human Rights Watch appointed him to their Mideast Advisory Board.
