GAZA, (PIC)– Detained MP Ahmed Saadat, the secretary-general of the popular front for the liberation of Palestine (PFLP), warned Tuesday Mahmoud Abbas and his authority of pursuing the policy of tinkering with the Palestine liberation organization (PLO) and its institutions.

In a letter leaked from Israeli jails, Saadat called on the Palestinian Authority (PA) to activate the Cairo declaration of 2005 and the national accord document and renounce the policy of waiting after peace negotiations reached a deadlock.

He also called for resuming national dialog to achieve national reconciliation and rearrange the Palestinian house, and urged the national reconciliation committee and the PLO to hold a meeting to conduct a comprehensive political review and formulate a program of national action based on the resistance option.

The PFLP official called for continuing to boycott Israel, fight all forms of normalization with it and unveil its true ugly face and its false claims about democracy, especially on the first anniversary of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

In another context, the independent committee for human rights (the Ombudsman office) challenged judicially the law of security approval set by the PA as a condition for every Palestinian wanting to hold public office in the PA.

The committee said that this condition derogates the fundamental rights of Palestinian civil servants in the West Bank and violates the provisions of the Palestinian basic law as well as the civil service act of 1998 and its executive bylaws.

The committee said it received more than 250 complaints from Palestinian civil servants until the end of last November after the PA sanctioned the condition of security approval which stipulates that any person nominated to hold public office must obtain approval from Abbas’s security apparatuses.
