Professor Imad al-Barghouthi

UCU calls on the Israeli authorities to release renowned Palestinian Astrophysicist

Following an emergency motion at UCU Congress in June, UCU wrote to the Israeli government calling for them to release Professor Imad al-Barghouthi.

Professor Barhgouthi was originally arrested on 24 April and placed in administrative detention. At the end of May, he was scheduled to be released but instead was charged with 'incitement' and his case transferred to the military courts. 

UCU has written again to the Israeli embassy [21kb] in London calling for Professor Barghouthi's release.
