Detention - Ahmad O. (13)

08:00 Jan 12 2014 'Issawiyya, East Jerusalem

Ahmad O., 13, was detained on accusation of throwing stones.

Around 8 a.m. Ahmad O. went with his father to Al Mascobiyya Interrogation and Detention Center (IDC) in compliance with a summons, which Israeli soldiers had delivered to the family home at 3 a.m. that morning.

On the way to the IDC, Ahmad's father informed him of his right to remain silent and to have a parent present during interrogation. However, upon arrival, guards refused entry to Ahmad’s father.

Ahmad was subsequently interrogated without the presence of a lawyer or parent, despite his father's remonstrations. Two interrogators accused him of stone-throwing. When he denied accusations, the interrogator threatened he would arrest his father, physically assault Ahmad, and order the demolition of his home. Ahmad was also verbally abused and intimidated in this way: “They both started shouting near my ears for about a minute, and I put my hands on my ears and started crying and was really scared”

He was detained from 9 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. without food or water. When he asked to use the bathroom, the interrogator reportedly responded, “'Stay here and pee on yourself, you piece of sh*t.'”

After 8 hours Ahmad signed a 5-page statement in Hebrew without knowing its contents, then was released to his father.
