UFree Network has called on Bulgarian authorities not to extradite Omar Zayed Nayef former a former Palestinina political prisoner due to Israeli continued pressures.
Well-informed sources told UFree that Israeli ambassador to Sofia demanded Bulgarian authorities to hand over the Palestinian former political prisoner Omar Zayed Nayef who lives with his family in Bulgaria since 1994.
In a serious move, Bulgarian authorities detained Nayef's older son in order to exert more pressure on him after he refused to hand himself to police.
UFree warned of the seriousness of Israeli attempts to target Palestinians abroad, considering it a violation to international conventions and laws that allow freedom of movement.
UFree called on international human rights to act urgently to prevent any Bulgarian intention to hand the former political prisoner to Israel and to stop Israeli prosecution to and persecution of Palestinian former prisoners.
