Free Mohammed El Halabi

Mohammed El Halabi is a UN humanitarian hero, who was a manager with World Vision in Gaza before he was arrested by Israeli soldiers in June 2016.

Israel has alledged he’s diverted $50 million USD in aid money to Hamas – but Australian Government and independent investigations by World Vision found no evidence of diversion of funds.

The charges are preposterous – the amount of money he’s accused of diverting is double World Vision’s entire operating budget for the last ten years.

Mohammed El Halabi is a UN humanitarian hero, who was a manager with World Vision in Gaza before he was arrested by Israeli soldiers in June 2016.

Israel has alledged he’s diverted $50 million USD in aid money to Hamas – but Australian Government and independent investigations by World Vision found no evidence of diversion of funds.

The charges are preposterous – the amount of money he’s accused of diverting is double World Vision’s entire operating budget for the last ten years.

Mohammed’s arrest and trial has been riddled with injustices  – interrogations that include torture and beatings so severe he’s lost hearing; relentless pressure to confess; court hearings that restrict defense’s access to evidence and capacity to run a defence; translation in the court so bad that judges intervene and World Vision staff are asked to take up official translation.

Israel has had more than 4 years and 151 hearings to prove their case against Mohammed. They’ve failed – now it’s time to release him.
