Harmeet Sooden Files Official Complaint Over Illegal Deportation

in

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – Harmeet Singh Sooden, who was held hostage in Iraq for four months in 2005-2006, has filed an official complaint to the governments of Canada and New Zealand and the United Nations for human rights violations committed against him by the Government of Israel in the course of denying him entry to the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

Mr Sooden travelled to Israel on 14 June 2008 to work as a human rights defender with International Solidarity Movement (ISM). ISM is an international human rights organisation composed of Palestinians, Israelis and internationals who monitor the human rights situation and protect human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

After declaring the purpose of his visit, Mr Sooden was assaulted and injured, threatened, held in solitary confinement, denied the right to legal counsel and consular representation as well as the right to appeal his deportation order in a court of law, and unlawfully deported on 18 June 2008—all in contravention of Israeli and international law.

Anyone who dares by word or deed to criticize the Zionists can expect a rough ride.

Never mind that Israel is the home of Genocide and Apartheid. Never mind that Israel is a war criminal nation. Never mind that this nasty little illegal nation never obeys UN sanctions. Never mind that this nasty little pox on the face of the middle east has over two hundred nuclear bombs and the means to deliver them.

Harmeet Singh Sooden deserves the support of right thinking people everywhere.
