Detention - Ayham M. (16)

22:00 Feb 26 2014 Osarin, Nablus, West Bank

Description
Ayham M., 16, was arrested on charges of throwing stones.

At 10 p.m., Ayham was with two friends on his way to watch a soccer game when two Israeli soldiers approached them. The soldiers pointed their rifles at the boys, marched them to a nearby jeep, arresting them without stating charges.

At a military camp, Ayham was bound, and detained on the ground outside in cold conditions until 7 a.m. without food or water. At 9 a.m. the following morning he was transported to to Ariel police station where Ayham was interrogated without the presence of a lawyer, family member, nor any explanation of his rights. The interrogator denied him food, water and access to a bathroom despite Ayham’s requests.

During interrogation, the interrogator threatened Ayham: “‘If you don't confess, I'll break your bones and lock you up in a cell for a long time without any food or water and you would starve to death,’ he shouted. I was scared of him.”

After forty minutes, Ayham confessed to stone-throwing on two occasions. Ayham recalls “begging” to use the bathroom but was not permitted to until 8 p.m., at Huwara IDC, when he was also offered food for the first time. Subsequently, he was transferred to Megiddo prison.

Ayham appeared before Salem Military Court for the first time on 2 March. At a later court appearance on 6 March he was knocked down and pushed by soldiers when his mother tried to kiss him.
