According to the Associated Press, a senior PA official has been pronounced dead after falling from a third floor kitchen window in a Palestinian security compound in the West Bank, where he was being interrogated. Although the PA and security video footage confirm that Osama Akel Hassan Mansour had jumped, members of Mansours family including his wife told Maan News agency that they believe he was killed.
Mansour was a special investigator who supposedly tracked Palestinians selling of land to Israelis, which is considered a crime to the PA. According to Abdel Latif al-Aidi, an official involved in the investigation of the death, Mansour was arrested on corruption charges about three weeks ago, and suspicion that Mansour himself may have sold land to Israelis.
After showering in the compound, Mansour, who was not handcuffed or accompanied by a guard, said that he was thirsty and went to the kitchen for a glass of water.
He went to the kitchen, opened the window and jumped, al-Aidi reported, adding that a security camera captured the footage, and the video capturing the fall would be released to the public.
Palestinians convicted of selling land to Israelis face the death penalty from the PA judiciary.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Well, it's a death penalty offense in the Palestinian Authority and in Jordan, so no harm, no foul. For anyone unaware, we're not talking about selling land to a Jew in areas under the control of the PA, or Jordan where Jews can't own land, rather selling land to a Jew in Israel.
Fort Marcy Park......east!
He should be hailed as a martyr for his courageous stand against housing discrimination.
Thanks SJackson. So, we start spreading rumors on the www that each of the leaders of the various factions sold land to Jews...
The coroner said it was the worst case of suicide he’d ever seen.
Anyone buying land from palis should include plane tickets out to all palis involved.
Maybe he’ll “die in a fall” during his “interrogation” about this.
