Detention - Yahia F. (17)

13:00 May 29 2014 Beita, Nablus, West Banka

Yahia F., 17, was arrested on charges of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails.

On 29 May, an Israeli intelligence office delivered a telephone summons to Yahia’s father, requiring Yahia to report to Huwara District Coordination Office (DCO). When he failed to report, the summons was repeated with threats of Yahia’s arrest and property damage if he failed to report a second time.

Around 1:00 p.m. on 29 May, Yahia’s father accompanied him to the DCO. He was arrested without knowing the reason, then strip searched, handcuffed, shackled and transported to Huwara Interrogation and Detention Center (IDC). There, soldiers kicked and detained him in a yard for two hours before moving him into a room. He was first provided water and permitted to use the bathroom around 7:00 p.m.

Around 7:00 a.m. the next morning, Yahia was transferred to Megiddo Prison. He was interrogated in Salem Interrogation and Detention Center (IDC) immediately after appearing before a judge for the first time on 1 June. The judge extended his detention that day and again on 8 June.

Interrogation took place while Yahia was still in shackles, without the presence of a lawyer or family member. His rights were not explained to him. He denied all accusations and signed a statement in Arabic.
