IOA-refuses-to-release-Nael-BarghouthiIman Nafie, the prisoner’s wife, said the Israeli prosecution office had submitted an objection to his release, which was scheduled for November 6.

She added that lawyer Mirav Khoury told her over the phone about this new development regarding her husband’s case.

59-year-old Barghouthi, who is known as the dean of the prisoners, was one of those prisoners who obtained their freedom in 2011 as part of the swap deal between the Palestinian resistance in Gaza and Israel before he was rearrested again in June 2014.

He is considered the longest-serving Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails, where he has spent a total of 36 years.
