Haaretz Request to Interview Imprisoned Terrorist Leader Denied by High Court

bargThe High Court of Justice on Tuesday, 19 Adar-II, rejected a petition from the daily Haaretz, seeking to be granted an interview with convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti. Barghouti, who heads the Tanzim faction of Fatah, is currently serving five life sentences for his crimes.

Haaretz reports it filed a request with the Israel Prison Authority towards the end of 2014 to interview Barghouti, a request that was denied.

The High Court ruled 2-1 against the Haaretz petition. Justices Yoram Danziger and Uri Shoham explained that if Barghouti wants to be interviewed, he should petition the court, not the newspaper on his behalf.
