Jail Term for PLC Speaker Denounced

Iran condemned as “cruel” and “illegal” an Israeli court’s verdict against the speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) Abdul Aziz Duwaik.  
An Israeli court on Monday handed down a one-year prison term to the Palestinian official and ordered him to pay more than a thousand dollars for delivering a speech at a pro-resistance celebration three years ago.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham denounced the sentence and said thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are in grave conditions, Press TV reported. Afkham said Israel’s ongoing arrests of Palestinian lawmakers and sentencing them to jail terms on baseless charges are a futile attempt to silence the justice-seeking voice of the Palestinian nation.
