By translation by Frank Khan: 28 June 2011
Note on court ruling:
The “evidence” used to convict Nagi was based on testimony obtained from a 14 year old child under duress. The child had been kidnapped from his home in the middle of the night, held incommunicado from his parents and lawyers and tortured by Israeli occupation forces.
Please see Reality vs Propaganda: the An Nabi Saleh Protests which responds to the false accusations against Naji, which were initially outlined in an article in YNET and referred to in the military court ruling.
THE FOLLOWING IN A TRANSLATION OF THE OCCUPATION/MILITARY COURT JUDGEMENT HANDED DOWN AGAINST NAGI TAMMIMI.
Nagi Mohammad Abed Al Ateef Tamimi, 49 years old, a resident of Nabi Saleh was convicted based on his plea of guilty to the offense of incitement and support of an enemy organization. The original indictment was amended as part of the plea bargain. Nagi has been convicted of being (together with Basem Tamimi) the organizer, party responsible for and inciter of public disturbances and violent demonstrations in Nabi Saleh from January, 2010 until March, 2011.
Nagi & Basem regularly brought together the youth of the village and other nearby villages dividing them into a number of groups with each group having a specific role as part of the violent demonstrations in Nabi Saleh. They briefed the groups during the week in the Municipal Building.
One of the groups was responsible for blocking the security forces (SF) access to the village by blocking the village roads with large garbage dumpsters on Thursday nights. Another group was responsible for drawing the SF into ambushes set up by two other groups that would throw stones at the SF. Another group was responsible for gathering gas grenades which failed to explode and transferring them to another group which threw them at the SF. Another group’s job was to close the roads to the SF by burning tires and the use of boulders while another group would throw stones at the SF by the use of sling shots or hurlers. In addition, Nagi organized groups in the villages of Dir Nizam and Aboud to throw stones at Israeli vehicles driving to the Halamish settlement next to Nabi Saleh.
