The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns an arson attack on the car of Sheikh Tayseer Rajab al-Tamimi, former Chief Justice of Palestine and Head of Freedom and Independence Party (Hares), by unknown persons in Hebron on Friday, 21 December 2012. PCHR sees this attack as part of the state of security chaos and assaults on the rule of law in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

 

According to investigations conducted by PCHR, and the testimony of Sheikh Tayseer al-Tamimi, 60, at approximately, 02:00 on Friday, 21 December 2012, a heavy explosion occurred in front of Sheikh al-Tamimi's house in Abu Rumman area in Hebron in the south of the West Bank.  It was found out that the explosion resulted from setting fire to Sheikh al-Tamimi's car, which was parked in front of the house.  Sheikh al-Tamimi stated to PCHR that his wife awoke him at that time telling him that there was a smoke smell in the house.  He called the Civil Defense, whose crew arrived at the scene nearly an hour later and extinguished the fire.  The police also arrived at the scene and opened an investigation.

 

PCHR condemns this attack, which is part of the state of security chaos and assaults on the rule of law in the oPt, and calls upon the public prosecution to seriously investigate it, search for the perpetrators and bring them before justice.
