  • Description

    In the wake of allegations by the British newspaper, the Sunday Times, that Israeli authorities have been torturing Arab prisoners, the Israeli Government censor has released a film of an interview with an Arab prisoner by two international news agencies. During the interview, jailed Palestinian collaborator Dr. Mohamed Rashad Musmar told Reuters reporter Arik Bachar and Visnews Television cameraman Micki Molad that he himself had been 'beaten and maltreated' by Israeli authorities during interrogation. The Israeli Government denied the original Sunday Times report on torture of Arab prisoners, and allowed selected journalists to interview prisoners in jail in the occupied Gaza strip -- subject to final censorship. This interview with Dr. Musmar, taken at the end of June, has just been released.
