Detention - Basheer D. (17)

09:00 Feb 4 2014 Beita, Nablus, West Bank

Israeli forces took Basheer, 17, into custody when he reported to an Israeli interrogation center for questioning as demanded the day before by an Israeli intelligence officer via mobile phone.

On 3 February, Basheer received a call on his mobile phone from an Israeli intelligence officer demanding that he present himself the next day at Huwara District Coordination Office for questioning at 9 am. He reported for questioning on 4 February and without being informed of any charges against him, he was arrested and told he would be sent to interrogation. Basheer was promptly bound and blindfolded and taken to Huwara Interrogation and Detention Center where he was strip-searched and detained until 8 p.m. He was then transferred to Megiddo prison inside Israel, arriving around 11 p.m.

On 6 February, Basheer was brought to Salem Interrogation and Detention Center for interrogation. With no access to an attorney and no family member present, an Israeli interrogator accused Basheer of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails. He then told Basheer that other children had provided statements against him. After denying the accusations and refusing to confess, Basheer was called a liar, kicked on his legs, and punched in the stomach and head.

“I became very scared of him and decided to confess,” says Basheer. “Others had already said things about me, so I confessed to throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli cars.”

Basheer appeared the first time before a military court judge at Salem military court following his interrogation.
