Since 27 November 2010, human rights defender Mr Hatem Moqdadi has been placed in incommunicado detention by a Lebanese Military Intelligence Unit in Naher el-Bared, northern Lebanon.
Hatem Moqdadi is a coordinator for the Palestinian Human Rights Organisation (PHRO) and is based at Naher el-Bared Camp. The PHRO is an independent human rights NGO which works to promote, protect, and defend the rights of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
On 26 November 2010, security officials at Badawi Camp issued Hatem Moqdadi with a summons to report to the Lebanese Military Intelligence Unit at Naher el-Bared for questioning on 27 November at 8:00am. Mr Moqdadi immediately contacted Mr Ghassan Abdallah, president of the PHRO, to inform him of the summons.
