Detention - Husam G. (14)

19:00 Dec 7 2013 Old City, Jerusalem

Husam G., 14, was detained on accusations of throwing stones at Israeli police.

Around 7:00 p.m., Husam was playing with friends in front of his house when three armed Israeli soldiers and a policeman informed Husam and his father that he was wanted for questioning.

Husam’s father brought him to Beit Eliyaho Police Station and remained for interrogation—but was instructed not to speak during interrogation, which took place without the presence of a lawyer or an explanation of rights. Husam was accused of throwing stones at Israeli police but denied charges.

His father was permitted to accompany him during transport to Al Qashleh Police Station but stopped at the gate. Husam was detained for four hours in a chair facing away from a classmate (14) and refused use of the bathroom despite multiple requests. He was interrogated a second time in the presence of his father and when he again denied throwing stones, the interrogator reportedly stated, “I'm sending you to Al Mascobiyya to taste another kind of interrogation.” Before transport, Husam signed a document in Hebrew without knowing its contents.

He was detained in a shared cell in Al Mascobiyya Interrogation and Detention Center overnight. Around 9 a.m., Husam and his classmate were released at the gate to their parents on bail of 3,000 NIS and one week house arrest—with permission to leave the house only for school.
