An Israeli military court ordered the administrative detention of Wadha Fukaha for ten months without trial or charge, citing secret evidence tabled by the Israeli military prosecution.

The Palestinian prisoner"s club said that the Israeli judge sanctioned the recommendation depending on the so-called secret file that the defendant and her lawyer could not get hold of at the pretext of preserving secrecy of the source.

The club said that Fukaha was about to complete her term in prison when the administrative detention order was issued against her.

It noted that many Palestinian prisoners had appealed to PA officials to demand an end of the Israeli occupation"s policy of administrative detention, describing it as "inhuman" and in flagrant violation of human rights.
