Shawan Jabarin Denied Right to Travel

Shawan Jabarin, the director of Al Haq, which is based in Ramallah and does legal work in the area of Palestinian rights, has been refused the right to leave the Occupied Territory to travel to the Netherlands to receive the Guezen Medal, on behalf of his organisation:
Shawan is a great friend of the Irish Centre for Human Rights, and we all admire his enormous contribution to the promotion of human rights. He completed an LLM here some years ago.
