Trial of poet Dareen Tatour resumes

The trial of poet Dareen Tatour will resume in Nazareth Magistrate's Court today, Thursday, April 27, at 12:00, before Judge Adi Bambiliya.

In this hearing the last prosecution witness is due to testify, after all defense witnesses were heard in March. This is expected to be the last hearing before the verdict.

Poet Tatour was arrested on October 11, 2015, for a poem and Facebook statuses. She spent three months in different Israel prisons and is still under house detention, already for more than one and half years.

The presence of human rights activists in the court is an expression of solidarity with Dareen against persecution and the attempts to silence her, as well as defense of the freedom of expression of all of us.
