Mr. Kuttab, a Palestinian journalist and broadcaster has been been questioned and detained because he complained to the PNA about jamming of television broadcasts of sessions of the Palestinian Legislative Council.
This recent detention is one more example of a pattern
in which the PNA attempts to intimidate and silence journalists who openly criticize the
PNA, rather than address the needs of a democratic society and the substance of the
criticism. B'TSELEM: The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied
