On Thursday, 20 October 2011, the Permanent
Military Court held the sixth hearing in Gaza City to consider the case
relating to the death of the Italian solidarity activist Vittorio Arrigoni.
Lawyers from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) attended the hearing
in their capacity as legal representatives of the Arrigoni family.

 

 

During the session, the Military Prosecutor
presented the inspection report together with records of evidence. The Court
adjourned the verdict to 03 November 2011, until completion of the information

PCHR will continue to follow up the hearings
held by the Court to consider Arrigoni’s case and update the Arrigoni family on
developments, in coordination with the family’s representative, Attorney
Gilberto Pagani, based on a power of attorney granted by the family to PCHR
lawyer.
