12th June 2019
Rhys Davies attended court in Jericho, in the West Bank, on behalf of Suha Jbara, a US/Panamanian citizen detained and tortured by the Palestinian Authority. Following her arrest in November 2018, Ms Jbara was detained for over two months during which time she was subjected to repeated acts of torture, and held in solitary confinement.
On 12th June 2019, Ms Jbara was brought before judges at the Jericho courthouse for the 5th time, but has yet to be formally charged. Submissions to the UN Special Rapporteur on torture are now pending.
