شهيد في سجن أريحا الفلسطيني بعد خمسة أيام من إستشهاد سجين في سجن إسرائيلي. قوات خاصة أوروبية تدرب الشرطة الفلسطينية على تعذيب وقتل السجناء والموقوفين. شكوى في طريقها ضد قائد بعثة كوبس الأوروبية في فلسطين
Update: On March 5 2013 we got a response to this article from Mr. Benoit Cusin, Press and Public Information Officer of EUPOL COPPS, they wish to have their response published. It is published at the end of the article.
Five days after the physical liquidation of Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat, 30 at the Megiddo zionist Prison on last Saturday, 23 February 2013, another Palestinian prisoner, Ayman Mohammad Sharif Samara, 40, “died” on 1 March 2013, at the Jericho Prison in the occupied West Bank.
The Jericho Police detention is formally run by the Palestinian Authority but in fact it is run by the so-called EUPOL COPPS, the European Union Special Forces Co-coordinating office in the West Bank headed by the Swedish citizen Commissioner Henrik Malmquist. Similarly, the military system in Palestine, including jails, while formally run by Palestinians, is actually run by the USA representative Admiral Paul Bushong. This system of colonial repression “security coordinator” under disguise of peace infrastructure is a heritage General Keith Dayton and Lt. Gen. Michael Moeller.
Jaradat, who tortured to death at the israeli jail, was arrested on 19 February 2013 from his house in the Sa’ir village north of Hebron, and on 20 February 2013 his family was informed by the Palestinian Prisoners Club that Jaradat was transferred to al-Jalama Detention Centre for interrogation. On Friday, 22 February 2013, he was transferred to the Megiddo Prison, where he died on the next day, February 23 2013 due to the torture inflicted on him.
Samara was a political figure from Jenin. He was arrested by the Palestinian police on February 28 2013, severely tortured during interrogation and died on the second day after his arrest on 1 March 2013 at Palestinian Authority jail in Jericho.
On Saturday March 2 2013, a sit-in was organized by the political prisoner’s families in front of the Jericho prison. The PA imposed silence on the protest activity against the murder of Samara in their jail. Journalist Mustafa Khawaja was arrested by the PA while covering the sit-in in front of the prison.
The reason of the death of Arafat Jaradat in israeli jail was exposed by his autopsy which was attended by Palestinian Dr. Saber al-Aloul, director of the Palestinian Medico-legal Institute. Dr. al-Aloul’s report concluded that Jaradat’s death was caused by nervous shock resulting from severe pain, which was caused by multiple injuries inflicted through direct and extreme torture.
The reason behind the murder of and true cause of the death of Samara at the Palestinian jail will never see the light. ONLY LIES will be spread by the “high authorities”, who will cover the crime just as they have covered several murders before.
The American Admiral Paul Bushong, the s9-called “security coordinator” and the Swedish citizen Henrik Malmquist “Police coorinator”, head of the EUPOL COPPS are directly culpable for the crimes perpetrated by the PA against political prisoners at the PA jails.
It is time to expose the many crimes and violations of the human rights which are encouraged and covered up by the EUPOL COPPS and the USA presence in Palestine. It is time to inform the Europeans and Americans about the crimes perpetrated by the PA “Police and military” in the interest of Israel and covered by the EU.
The EUPOL COPPS (special forces) mission in Palestine IS EXCLUSIVELY a clear violation of the EU constitution. They ONLY teach Palestinians how to murder, arrest, violate the human rights and cover the crimes. This is the real mission of EUPOL COPPS in Palestine and not the nice-sounding white lies which EU publishes on-line, saying that EUPOL COPPS helps Palestinian Police “to contribute the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements” and to “advise Palestinians on criminal justice, and implementing the human rights”. Such statements are a pure bullshit.
The EUPOL COPPS personnel are directly involved in encouraging and covering up crimes against humanity in Palestine. One example: on April 15, 2012, the Palestinian police and other security forces trained by EUPOL COPPS special forces, executed in cold blood Palestinian teenager Amthal Ghannam al-Ghwadre in the village of Bir al-Basha and arrested his brother Moammar, an ex-prisoner who had been released by israel in October 2011 under the Al-Ahrar deal, the prisoner exchange deal accorded between Hamas and the Israeli occupation under the auspices of Egypt.
A report will be issued sooner or later about all the crimes which the Palestinian police perpetrates under the leadership of EUPOL COPPS. The report will be submitted to the ICC as a complaint against these European foreigners who only work to as spies in my homeland, receive great sums of money from European tax-payers as salaries under the pretext of helping Palestinian police, while their factual mission is protect israel and and to encourage and cover up crimes against humanity, atrocities and the violations of the human rights of the Palestinian people by training the Palestinian police to behave as a group of criminals and spies, and lastly as death squads.
I wrote some time back to the office of Catherine Ashton about the atrocities supported by the EU in Palestine, but nothing happened. Nothing could happen because these atrocities are in the interest of Israel. And this, again, makes clear that nobody in the EU has any interest in “human rights” or “peace” in Palestine. To the contrary, it becomes clear from observing their behavior that everybody in the EU, from Ashton down and including the EUPOL people, are yet another occupation troop whose only interest is to enable israel and lastly European jewry to steal and murder with impunity. The only peace which these people have in mind for us is the peace of the cemetery, but only after lengthy and brutal torture sessions.
Response to this article from Mr. Benoit Cusin, Press and Public Information Officer of EUPOL COPPS.
We have noticed with a great disappointment the serious allegations contained in the article “Murder in Jail Under Cover of EUPOL COPPS” published on your Website on 03 March. For that reason we ask you to publish the following written response under the above mentioned article and as a permanent comment on your website. Please acknowledge receipt of this email and confirmation of the publication. Thank you very much in advance,
“EUPOL COPPS strongly deplores and categorically refutes the comments made in relation to its mandate and purpose of the Mission. The comments are regrettably and simply inaccurate and untrue.
EUPOL COPPS has neither an executive mandate, nor a monitoring role in relation to its Palestinian partner authorities and is clearly not a “Special Force”. It has an advising and mentoring mandate to provide support to the Palestinian Civil Police (PCP) and judicial institutions in pursuit of their reform and development agendas.
EUPOL COPPS does not run prisons in Palestine, but advises the Palestinian Civil Police in the reform and development of the Correction and Rehabilitations Centres Departments. EUPOL COPPS will continue to provide technical and legal advice, based on the rule of law, to the different justice institutions, such as the Ministry of Justice, the Courts, the Prosecution, the Correction and Rehabilitations Centres Department.
All our advisory and mentoring activities abide by and are carried out in furtherance of international human rights standards. That EUPOL COPPS has an obligation and an unshakeable commitment to observe those latter in all its activities. EUPOL COPPS has never aided and abetted, encouraged or condoned any human rights violation whatsoever on the part of its Palestinian partner institutions.
Building on the excellent cooperation with the Mission, the PCP has shown an increased willingness and indeed wish to tackle the issue of police accountability and oversight with the support of EUPOL COPPS.
On behalf of EUPOL COPPS,
Benoit Cusin, Press and Public Information Officer”
