20 August 1968: Chief-Inspector R.'s requests an Administrative Detention
“On one hand, the investigation has not yielded sufficient evidence for prosecuting […], On the other hand, the suspicion […] that the two are nationalists and may be tied with or maybe even assisting hostile elements beyond the Green Line […] is growing significantly”
“The aforesaid two, and members of their household, are the only people in Khirbet Sharaye’ who, as recalled, have refused and continue to refuse to reach an agreement with the Israel Land Authority and/or the Jewish National Fund toward a resolution of their land issues in the area as part of the Land Concentration Law”
Request to place father and son under Administrative Detention denied
“Our recommendation to restrict them was not accepted by the GSS, which has jurisdiction to initiate such measure in the Advisory Committee. Therefore, the two were released upon termination of the 30-day detention.”
